About Our Speaker: Mark Schmitz, MSc

During his MSc. at the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Marc’s interest in functional human anatomy grew tremendously while dissecting and studying cadavers. It was here that his interest in observing functional human anatomy in “real time” peaked, which led to the start of embracing musculoskeletal ultrasound.
After completing numerous courses and attending conferences on the topic, he started developing his own course and SonoSkills was formed in 2010. Since then SonoSkills has taught its courses in 25 countries. Marc’s team consists out of 22 expert trainers. He teaches, next to managing SonoSkills, the foundational course and some intermediate level courses. Marc has a special interest in the shoulder joint.

Besides his work at SonoSkills, he has been involved as being the head, and building, of a Master of Science program dedicated to MSK ultrasound. Marc has published some articles in peer reviewed journals in the field of MSK ultrasound. He also wrote a book with technical extremity scanning guidelines. Marc’s goal is spreading the knowledge of ultrasound to all healthcare professionals worldwide.

When he is not teaching courses or developing new content Marc enjoys traveling and crafting his own beers.
