This degree covers the theory and practice of cardiac rhythm management and electrophysiology. You will study key concepts in leadership and management as well as the legal and ethical issues related to biomedical research and clinical practice. The course also provides a solid grounding in experimental design and statistics and gives students the opportunity to undertake an independent research project under the guidance and supervision of an academic.

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.

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

- Hands-on Training and Clinical Practice (20 ECTS credits)

- Research (20 ECTS)

- Self-study (10 ECTS)

- Congress Participation and Publications (4 ECTS)

- Interdisciplinary Seminars Physiology and Electrophysiology (3 ECTS)

- Weekly Seminars Hearth Rhythm Management Centre (3 ECTS)

Certificate

At the end of the postgraduate course a certificate for a ‘Postgraduate in Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing’, signed by the rector of the Vrije universiteit brussel, will be handed out by the institute for Postgraduate Training of the Vrije universiteit brussel (iPAVub).

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.
