Heartbeat’s Training Vision

In addition to face to face teaching and a clinical setting,  hands on training is used in a wetlab that is tailored to the needs of the trainees. Additionally, Heartbeat offers the possibility of providing simulation education. Heartbeat has two Califia perfusion simulators with which both equipment and procedure skills can be trained in an intensive manner. Our instructors are EUSIM certified.

What’s Going On

Different target groups
We expect a variety of audiences. For example, we received teams from all over the world who work in Cardiothoracic surgery. We also received commercially oriented stakeholders.
