What do you learn on the postgraduate programme?

Cardiac arrhythmias management is rapidly developing as a subspecialty within cardiology. It 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 annual interventions in Europe). Device implantation for arrhythmia treatment, sudden death prevention and cardiac resynchronisation are now regular practice (performed in more than 200,000 patients in Europe per year). More cardiologists are required with comprehensive knowledge of cardiac arrhythmias disorders and who are trained in cardiovascular catheter manipulation, heart electrical signal recording and interpretation, device implantation and follow-up to ensure both patient's safety and quality. Will you be one of them?

Student reviews of the course
  • Aino Amanda Anttila | Student Social Sciences
    "The international nature made our discussions far more interesting and thought-provoking, and I believe that has made us more inclusive and understanding of one another."
  • Pooja Thomas | Student Social Sciences
    "It's the programme environment that makes it worth it. This level of diversity (of thoughts, opinions and jokes!) is very difficult to find at any other university."
  • Jozefien Maria Dierynck | Alumna Social Sciences
    "The professors are great and always available for discussion or to answer specific questions. I am still delighted with the choice I made three years ago and would definitely recommend it!"
