Biosketch J.M.Monica van de Ridder, PhD, MSc

Michigan State Univeristy College of Human Medicine Department of Emergency Medicine – Spectrum Health


My passion is feedback research. This is reflected in my PhD-thesis Feedback in the Clinical Setting (2015). What makes feedback effective? What is the role between learner’s perception and their behavior? How does stress impact the feedback reception? I like to collaborate with students on research projects. It is fulfilling to teach them fundamental research skills and to help them discover how research is and can be ‘fun’.

In December 2015 I moved from the Netherlands to the USA to work as Assistant Professor in the College of Human Medicine (CHM) at Michigan State University in the Department of Emergency Medicine. At Spectrum Health Hospital Group I work in the area of Faculty Development. I am the co-chair of our Spectrum Health Academy of Physician Educators (SHAPE). I am the director of our Clinical Teaching Program. This is a faculty development program which focuses on teaching our clinicians to become better at observation, assessment, feedback and workplace-based learning. I help organize mentoring programs for Clinical Educators to advance their careers, and collaborate with faculty and students on scholarly projects related to teaching, learning and feedback. As one of my first projects at MSU I developed an elective for medical students on optimizing learning processes.

It is rewarding for me to be able to serve as a mentor for several faculty in my institution. As part of a team I organize the Young Medical Educators Group meetings at the AMEE conference and I serve on the panel of reviewers for MedEdPublish.


In the Netherlands, I worked as a teacher in primary and vocational education from 1996 to 2000. I then moved to the University Medical Center Utrecht in Utrecht and conducted feedback research and worked in the area of faculty development from 2001-2010. During my tenure at the Albert Schweitzer hospital Dordrecht I worked for eight years as a Senior Advisor for Medical Education, with a specific focus on faculty development. Due to the faculty development courses and a System of Educational Quality Management we developed, the team was able to transform the learning climate to a safe feedback climate within the hospital setting.


Colleagues describe me as a friendly, people oriented, collaborator who likes to try new things. I am not only paying attention to the product but the process is equally important for me. In my work, I’m always looking for opportunities to learn. When I have something in my mind, I don’t give up. In my free time I enjoy travelling, visiting museums, reading, cooking and needle work.


I hold a Master in Educational Science from Utrecht University, The Netherlands, and I obtained a PhD in Medical Education at the University Medical Center Utrecht at the same university. The Harvard-Macy course on Leading Innovations in Healthcare and Education has given me a lot of insight in change processes.
