Introduction

Cardiovascular disease: numbers don’t lie. Twenty five percent of the Dutch people eventually dies of cardiovascular disease. Although during the last 40 years mortality due to cardiovascular disease has decreased steadily, the last few years this decrease has declined (source: Dutch Heart Foundation). To further reduce the number of patients and mortality, scientific research is essential.  For that, we need you!

Are you interested in the exact cause of a myocardial or cerebral infarction or do you want to know how cardiac failure or arrhythmias develop? Or are you more interested in improving prevention or treatment of cardiovascular disease? Within the Center for Circulatory Health you can participate in solving these issues.

On this website students with an interest for circulatory health can find information on:

  1.  The organization of the Center for Circulatory Health.
  2.  Cardiovascular education within our (bio)medical training facilities.
  3.  Internships, theses and career opportunities.
