Trains future leaders in arrhythmia management and research
“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.”
“Graduates of DAS-CAM will understand how value based healthcare includes scientific evidence, health economics, organisational excellence, and value to patients.”
“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 an eye-opener because it gives you a much wider view on electrophysiology and arrhythmia. A lot of aspects that you don’t get in your formal journey as an electrophysiologist are covered in this unique programme.”
“Coming here, you realise you’re good. However, there’s still a lot of things you can learn. You are up to the best-of-the-best, including your teachers who are leaders in the field… and they are making you a lot better.”
“The DAS CAM programme exceeded by far my expectations. You meet with colleagues from all over Europe and learn from world-known experts. You can discuss very interesting cases and it truly enhances your clinical practice.”
One of the key needs identified by the European Society of Cardiology is the training of future leaders in arrhythmia management and research. For this purpose, a new educational programme entitled “Diploma of Advanced Studies in Cardiac Arrhythmia Management” (DAS-CAM) has been established. This initiative is a joint collaboration between Maastricht University Medical Center (MUMC+), European Heart Academy (EHA) and the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA), a long-standing provider of postgraduate education in arrhythmias.
DAS-CAM is supported by Abbott, Boston Scientific and Medtronic in the form of educational grants. The scientific programme has not been influenced in any way by its sponsors.
The course consists of an online introduction module and eight modules over two years, including a preparatory phase, an intensive in-person training, and an evaluation phase. The format of the course comprises small-group teaching, lectures, hands-on training, team projects and interaction with European leaders in their field.
In case of travel restriction adapted formats will be offered. Hybrid and online teaching solutions have been successfully implemented, allowing participants to follow the programme worldwide
