BIOAcademy Course Programs in Person
During the global COVID-19 pandemic, the educational program is interupted. All training is available in smaller elements through our video conferencing platform. Contact your local Rep for further details, or send your name and job description, hospital and educational requirements to EducationUK@biotronik.com.
In 2018, BIOTRONIK launched a new educational program, partnering with globally renowned expert in Sudden Cardiac Death, Professor Pedro Brugada. Each event (hosted in European locations) addresses potential gaps in clinical evidence on topics.
“The major driver of scientific progress is realizing what we do not know, becoming aware of our ignorance. What we know is somehow already a solved problem. Real progress can only be made by recognizing and studying the areas where we are ignorant. Searching and solving the unknown.” Professor Brugada
Exam Prep Course
BIOTRONIK are pleased to offer this highly regarded IBHRE/BHRS prep course, facilitated by Dr Campbell and an expert panel. The IBHRE syllabus is reflected in the course agenda over two days. 99% of delegates surveyed said they would recommend this course to others. The sessions are dynamic, interactive, and the course in high demand, and when surveyed, 89% said they felt the content was 'about right'!
CRM UK Masterclass
These courses have been locally developed to enhance Cardiac Physiologists knowledge of BIOTRONIK CRM devices, algorithms and studies. Delivered regionally and supported by valued and experienced guest speakers from surrounding hospitals. This is a one day interactive program, where delegates learn and exchange best clinical practise. There are several Masterclasses available focused on Pacemaker, ICD therapies and Cardiac Resynchronisation.
BIOTRONIK Product Training
Hosted in BIOTRONIK UK HQ in Bicester, these snappy, interactive days are focused on BIOTRONIK's unique CRM or VI innovations such as CLS, DX, Home Monitoring, BIOMONITOR III, Zero Gravity and Orsiro. Cardiac HCPs learn from fellow clinicians about application of such technologies using real-life experience and case studies.
CRT Implanters Training Day
Utilising teaching aids like the Implant Simulator is a realistic tool that gives physicians the opportunity to learn through practice. Dealing with emergencies as they come up, physicians usually have to rely on real-life events to master their lifesaving skills. With our simulator, cardiologists and electrophysiologists can get hands-on training without the risk of any negative consequences for the patient.
Due to the small number of women in EP and in leadership roles the Electrophysiologist International Community Alliance (EPIC) offers a professional development program specifically for female EPs and Cardiac Implanted Electronic Device (CIED) specialists. The EPIC Alliance is a global network of female EPs who collaborate and inspire each other. It ensures a promotion of topics like professional development, work-life-balance, education on radiation and fortified clinical research (such as BIOWOMEN) as well as speaking opportunities for women.
International Fellowship Program (IFP)
BIOTRONIK are able to offer limited places for company educational events led by key world-renowned innovators to discuss hot topics and gain practical experience. These seminars are hosted at BIOTRONIK headquarters in Berlin, and other international centres of excellence. To be accepted on these high-quality programs, the UK & Ireland team will be responsible for nominations through summer months - contact your local UK/IRE Rep to express interest.
Program runs Sept to June each year.
Zero Gravity Training
BIOTRONIK offer bespoke training on the unique weightless radiation protection system now available in the UK & Ireland. This capital equipment comes in a variety of floor or ceiling mounted products, and training is required for all HCPs involved in the installation of this capital equipment. After initial enquiries are made via the sales team, alongside a recorded webinar highlighting the clinical evidence highlighting the radiation exposure and orthopaediac challenges some Cardiologists can be expose to, BIOTRONIK will then tailor training to ensure Zero Gravity is perfectly adopted, maintained and protected for maximum use within the theatre/lab setting.
Listen to Professor Brugada who explains the concept of the BIOALLIANCE educational program
Asked how the first day of BIOALLIANCE London went, and why the BIOALLIANCE program was important, Professor Pedro Brugada shares his opinion on the educational importance and the crucial and varied roles of a Cardiologist.
