Between 1991 and 1994 he was a PhD student at the neurosurgery unit of the Medical College of Virginia in the United States. He received his doctorate from Amsterdam VU Academic Medical Centre for a dissertation entitled Early Ischemia After Severe Head Injury in Humans. From 1995 to 2001 he trained to become a neurosurgeon at two Amsterdam hospitals, VU Medical Centre and Amsterdam Academic Medical Centre.


Dr Schröder first registered as a certified neurosurgeon in 2001. From 1 October 2001 to March 2003, he served as a registrar at Haaglanden Medical Centre’s neurosurgery unit in The Hague. Afterwards, he worked at Amsterdam’s Slotervaart Hospital’s neurosurgery unit from March 2003 to October 2010.
