The Circulatory Health Research Center is strongly embedded in academic teaching within the curricula of the bachelors biomedical sciences (BMW), medicine (GNK), and clinical sciences (ZG&S), the premaster clinical health sciences (KGW) and master programs Biology of Disease (BoD), Regenerative Medicine and Technology (RMT), Drug Innovation (DI). In addition, the Circulatory Health Research Center adheres to the research and education philosophy of the New Utrecht School (DNUS). We offer various courses, including Utrecht Summer School, University College and PhD courses. In addition, teachers from the Circulatory Health Research Center are involved in external teaching, including the Papendal courses organized by the Dutch Heart Foundation.

The educational tasks of our teachers mostly include coordination of courses, providing (interactive) lectures, supervising working groups and tutorials, and supervising students during internships.

Within the various Utrecht (bio)medical programs, a lot of attention is given to cardiovascular education. The Circulatory Health Research Center is closely involved in the development and implementation of this education. In addition to theoretical education, the (bio)medical programs also offer students many opportunities to contribute to cardiovascular research through research internships.

The Circulatory Health program also sponsors the Utrecht Student Journal.

Within the strategic program, we contribute in various ways to the further professional development of our (bio)medical professionals. For example, there is a monthly lecture cycle (Jongbloed seminars) in which (inter)national experts discuss aspects of cardiovascular research. In addition, master classes and grand rounds are organized, where (medical) specialists interactively discuss their research and patient cases. 

The Circulatory Health Research Center also has multiple online courses available. The (Dutch) e-learning cardiogenetics is intended to give the cardiologist an overview in cardiogenetic diagnostics. In the e-learning, case studies provide insight into the indications referring to the clinical geneticist, diagnostics and family research in patients with cardiomyopathy or arrhythmia with a possible genetic component. Then, the Cardiovascular Epidemiology course. The objective of this online medical course is to provide you with insights into the principles of cardiovascular disease (CVD) epidemiology and the important issues that are involved – plus a lot more besides.
