Educating the experts

of tomorrow


Our unique Masterclasses give surgeons, doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and other health professionals the opportunity to gain new skills, knowledge and hands-on experience from leading experts in the field so that more heart patients from across the UK can benefit.

Topics of previous Masterclasses have included ‘Arterial Revascularisation for CABG’, ‘CMR for Coronary Heart Disease’, ‘Aortic Arch Surgery’ and ‘Minimal Invasive Extracorporeal Technologies’.

Places on our Masterclasses are free to delegates with registration and accommodation costs funded by Heart Research UK.

“The masterclass was an invaluable course for the senior heart surgery trainee or junior consultant. The opportunity to learn from world class experts in their field in an excellent educational environment will increase the standard of care for aortic patients throughout the UK”
