Experience in interventional electrophysiology would be an advantage, but is not essential. Work in the catheterization laboratory includes elective and emergency cases from a large drawing area and includes STEMI-call (24/7, 365). With two main hospital sites in Leer- and Weener-City-Centre and a satellite unit on Borkum-Island, Klinikum Leer is a 400+ bed University teaching hospital, which provides primary and secondary health services to the people of the east-frisian area. We care for 19.000 inpatients and 50.000 outpatients per year in 14 departments (internal medicine/ gastroenterology, cardiology and angiology, geriatrics, spinal surgery, vascular surgery, abdominal surgery, trauma surgery and orthopedics, pediatrics, gynecology/obstetrics, psychosomatic medicine and psychotherapy, ophthalmology, anesthesia/intensive medicine, radiology). Providing care to 3,500 inpatients per year, the department of cardiology and angiology is the largest public hospital cardiology department in East Frisia. We offer a full complement of sub-specialties in adult cardiology including coronary intervention, IVUS, FFR, rotablation, IABP, and electrophysiology with
PM-, ICD-, and CRT-D-implantation. We provide adult cardiology for further 5+ cooperating hospitals (Hospital of Emden, Aurich, Norden, Norderney, and Borromaeushospital of Leer). A busy STEMI program is in operation since 2004 with 24/7 coverage year-round. We have two dedicated cath labs one of which will soon be upgraded for hybrid procedures.

You will be joining a highly regarded clinical team of colleagues, who are encouraged to conduct research (i.e. FITT-STEMI project with STEMI networking) and who are passionate about teaching and passing their knowledge to our junior staff. You will be eligible for a deputy leading position at the department. You must hold the qualification as ‘Facharzt für Kardiologie’ (or equivalent), be eligible for vocational registration with the NiZzA, and be fluent in written and spoken German. Leer, a district town in Lower Saxony, North Western Germany, is a fantastic place for you and your family to live with amazing cuisine, culture and coastal scenery.
