Out of Office - Heart to Heart

Press/Media: Other

Description

FRANK HALFWERK, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF TECHNICAL MEDICINE, RUSHES TO MEET ME AT THE MAIN ENTRANCE OF THE MEDISCH SPECTRUM TWENTE (MST)
IN ENSCHEDE. HE HAS TO. IT’S OCTOBER, THE SECOND CORONA WAVE IS HITTING HARD AND, AS OF TODAY, FACEMASKS ARE MANDATORY IN THE HOSPITAL – AND
NOBODY CAN ENTER WITHOUT SHOWING A PROOF OF AN APPOINTMENT.
Luckily, Halfwerk is used to scurrying around the building. He waves me through. Dressed in his white medical coat, it is clear that the researcher and technical physician belongs here and I can pass the ‘checkpoint’. We run upstairs to the Thorax Centrum Twente, the department specializing in hearth and lungs treatment, where he works three days a week on ‘everything that has to do with the heart’. He has an office here as well as at the UT, where he just finished his PhD research and started as Assistant Professor of Technical Medicine. But he doesn’t seem to spend much time at his desk.
