Last Tuesday 9 October, Brussels hosted the first graduation of DAS-CAM; a new educational programme in the field of Cardiac Arrhythmia Management. In the past two years, 32 international cardiologists and electrophysiologists have been trained for a leading position in the field of electrophysiology. The DAS-CAM programme is an interfaculty and interdisciplinary initiative of Maastricht University (FHML and SBE), MUMC+, the European Society of Cardiology and the European Heart Rhythm Association.
Part of the programme is a leadership trajectory designed by UMIO and facilitated by Prof. dr. Marielle Heijltjes, Prof. dr. Piet Eichholtz, Martin Lammers, Prof. dr. Jan Cobbenhagen, and former colleagues of SBE, Prof. dr. Hein Schreuder and Prof. dr. Anneloes Raes. UMIO was also actively involved through the secondment of Ingrid Wesselingh in the organisation and coordination of this postgraduate programme. A standing ovation by all participants and faculty during the graduation ceremony in Brussels was living proof of her enduring commitment over the past two years to this fine example of interfaculty collaboration!
