Cardiac Arrhythmias management is rapidly developing as a subspecialty within cardiology that is devoted to the diagnosis and the treatment of cardiac rhythm disorders, including invasive evaluation of their mechanisms, controlled destruction of arrhythmogenic myocardium by percutaneous catheters, and implantation of cardiac rhythm management devices.

Catheter ablation is the therapy of choice for most supraventricular tachycardias (over 100 000 interventions performed every year in Europe). Device implantation for arrhythmia treatment, sudden death prevention, and cardiac resynchronization are practiced regularly nowadays (performed in more than 200 000 patients in Europe per year). The increase in the indications and the number of all of these procedures depicts the present scenario by emerging indications, an increasing number of invasive procedures, and the establishment of new practicing units and professionals. Nevertheless, these procedures require cardiologists with comprehensive knowledge of cardiac arrhythmias disorders and who are trained in cardiovascular catheter manipulation, heart electrical signal recording and interpretation, and device implantation and follow-up to ensure both patient's safety and quality.

Thus, it appears to be imperative to promote and ensure sufficient and homogeneous training and qualification in cardiac arrhythmias management amongst these professionals.

During the clinical training year, time is available to complete research projects and undertake smaller projects including case reports. Our fellows typically publish two to three peer reviewed publications during their clinical year and complete prior research projects. We encourage individuals without significant electrophysiology experience in their fellowship to participate in a comprehensive program that involves research and extended clinical training for two to three years (PhD program).

Course content

About the programme

This course is a joint collaboration between the European Heart Academy of ESC, European Heart Rhythm Association and Maastricht University Medical Centre (MUMC).

The Diploma of Advanced Studies in Cardiac Arrhythmia Management trains future leaders in arrhythmology to deliver state-of-the-art cardiovascular services in the next decade and beyond. DAS-CAM brings together renowned experts, who will cover not only clinical cardiac electrophysiology and device technology, but also the leadership, biostatistics and health economics perspectives. The programme will empower electrophysiologists to fulfil leadership roles as well as regulatory and managerial positions in their hospitals, universities, and other work environments.

Program Features

DAS-CAM is designed as an executive programme, consisting of eight modules spread over 2 years. Each module has the following format: online preparatory phase, intensive 4-day in-person training, followed by evaluation phase to integrate and reflect on the module. In addition to time spent in the classroom, you will also be expected to complete coursework from a distance. Modules will be taught in Brussels and Maastricht.

Year 1:
- Towards an optimal use of the ECG in cardiac arrhythmia management | Maastricht
- Fundamentals of Cardiac Arrhythmogenesis | Maastricht
- How to organise an arrhythmia unit? | Brussels
- Atrial fibrillation | Maastricht

Year 2:
- Ventricular tachycardia | Maastricht
- Cardiac pacing, defibrillation and electrical management of heart failure | Maastricht
- Sudden arrhythmic death | Maastricht
- Guideline implementation and future trends in arrhythmia management | Brussels

Tuition fees

For January 2017 entry, course fees were €2,500 per annum for a total of €5,000.
Travel, accommodation and other expenses accrued during the course will be covered by the participants.

Cardiovascular diseases remain a major cause of death and ill health worldwide. Read more
Cardiovascular diseases remain a major cause of death and ill health worldwide. This established MSc programme, taught by scientists and clinicians who are leaders in their field, offers students the opportunity to learn about topical areas in cardiovascular science, preparing them for further research or a career in industry.

Degree information

Students will develop a detailed knowledge of molecular and cellular cardiovascular science, animal models of cardiovascular disease, microvascular biology and mechanisms by which the heart and vasculature function in health and disease, as well as laboratory and statistical methods. They will gain valuable research skills and an awareness of the ethical, legal and social aspects of developments in cardiovascular disease.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of five core modules (90 credits), two optional modules (30 credits) and the research project (60 credits).

Core modules
-Cardiovascular Diseases
-Animal Models of Cardiovascular Disease
-Congenital Heart Disease - Fundamentals
-Heart and Circulation (30 credits)
-Basic Statistics for Medical Science

Optional modules - 30 credits of optional modules drawn from the following:
-Genetics of Cardiovascular Disease
-Clinical Application of Pharmacogenetic Test
-Drug Discovery II
-Microvascular Biology
-An introduction to Molecular Laboratory Methods in Cardiovascular Research
-Clinical Cardiology (open to clinicians only)

Clinical Cardiology is an academic MSc module rather than a standard clinical placement. The emphasis is to appreciate the impact of advances in cardiovascular science upon clinical practice.

Dissertation/research project
All MSc students undertake an independent research project which culminates in a dissertation of 10,000-12,000 words and an oral presentation (60 credits).

Teaching and learning
The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, presentations, tutorials, journal clubs, a quiz, statistical and laboratory practicals and anatomical examination of human congenital heart disease specimens. Assessment is through written and oral examinations, coursework essays, case reports, journal club and other oral presentations and the dissertation.

Careers

All graduates of this programme will be well placed for a PhD in this field and a career in research, and will have a sound basis for entry into the pharma industry.

Basic scientists may use the MSc as a stepping stone to MBBS studies. The programme also provides an excellent training for related fields such as scientific journalism and in areas requiring critical appraisal of complex data.

Top career destinations for this degree:
-Senior Lecturer, Lahore Medical & Dental College
-Doctor, Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
-GDL (Graduate Diploma in Law), BPP
-PhD Cardiac Electrophysiology, University of Surrey
-PhD Cardiovascular Science, University College London (UCL)

Employability
In addition to the academic insight into Cardiovascular Science, this programme supports the development of a wide range of skills which students will use at work. Oral and written communication skills are enhanced. Writing essays and the research project dissertation involves searching the literature, selection and interpretation of publications, and organisation of complex ideas into the final report.

Learning activities in the Statistics module develop quantitative analytical skills. Student develop group and independent projects. They gain insight into research planning and time management. They are supported by a personal tutor and informed by careers events and the UCL Careers Service.

Why study this degree at UCL?

The UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science brings together world-leading scientists and clinicians working in cardiovascular research to conduct innovative research for the prevention and treatment of diseases of the heart and circulation, and provide world-class teaching and training, and forward-thinking policy development.

UCL has one of the largest, most dynamic cardiovascular research bases in the UK. This interdisciplinary programme is taught in collaboration with UCLH, the Institute of Ophthalmology, the Institute of Child Health, Great Ormond Street Hospital and Barts Heart Centre, offering students access to a world-leading community at the forefront of cardiovascular research.
