The program is alligned with the Amsterdam Cardiovascular Sciences instute, a collaborative network of the VU University Amsterdam Medical Center and Academic Medical Center. The program started in 2009 and aims to educate talented students who are willing to be educated as top-scientists in Cardiovascular science and technology. The Cardiovascular Research program includes education regarding the development, diagnosis and treatment of heart- and vessel disease, and focusses on diseases with a huge societal impact, such as diabetes, myocardial infarction, thrombosis and heart failure.
Cardiovascular disease is, together with cancer, a leading causes of death in the Western world. In the Netherlands more than 100 people die every day due to cardiovascular disease. While patient outcome following acute cardiovascular disease has improved tremendously in the last decades, patients more and more suffer from the burden of chronic diseases like diabetes, heart failure or thrombosis. To improve patient outcome, more scientific research focusing on prevention, pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapy is needed. With your master’s degree you may contribute to further improvement of health care for these patients.
