In this innovative postgraduate programme, you will gain the state of the art on cardiac arrhythmology, regulatory and societal dimensions of arrhythmia management, as well as cardiovascular biostatistics, health economics and leadership expertise. These added skills will empower you to set new standards in the cardiovascular field and related services for the next decade and beyond.
Programme start date: January 2019
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. Main topics covered:
Professor Panos Vardas, ESC President 2012-2014, Managing Chair of the European Heart Agency: “One of the key needs identified by the European Society of Cardiology is the training of future leaders in arrhythmia management and research with a wide view of the societal and economical perspectives.”
Professor Harry Crijns, Chair of Cardiology at Maastricht University Medical Centre: “Graduates of DAS-CAM will understand how value based healthcare includes scientific evidence, health economics, organisational excellence, and value to patients.”
Professor Gerhard Hindricks, European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) President 2015-2017: “DAS-CAM goes far beyond a traditional arrhythmia course and we would like to attract the best candidates in Europe whose goal is to become a leader in arrhythmia research and clinics.”
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 an 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.The course language is English.
