Marc J.H. Schmitz

Founder & CEO, Specialist Physiotherapist, MSc. PT

Course: Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

During his MSc. at the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), 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 all over the European continent, as well as in Africa and the Middle East. The team consists out of 20 expert trainers that speak over nine languages in total.
