Our department offer the possibility to choose either the Research Project Course or the Clinical Project Course at 3th semester of the Master's Degree Programme in Medicine. The Research Project Course is a pre-graduate research training programme, which you can read more about under our research educational possibilities. If you choose to do your Project Course at our department, it does not necessarily has to be a part of the Individual Programme at our department.
We offer 8 weeks of introduction to clinical work.
In collaboration with Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Faculty of Technical Sciences and Department of Clinical Medicine, Faculty of Health, Aarhus University, Master's Degree students in Biomedical Engineering are exposed to our clinical training by 2 week study visits. These visits provides the students with an important insight into clinical practice and interaction with both patients, nurses, and doctors in our department. Our department also teaches theoretical courses in cardiovascular pathology as well as biomedical science technology and presentation.
We organize postgraduate and continuing courses for medical doctors at the animal facilities at Department of Clinical Medicine, Aarhus University, located at Aarhus University Hospital. Many of our courses are organized in collaboration with the Danish Board of Health and Danish Society of Cardiothoracic Surgery.
The Scandinavian School of Cardiovascular Technology is located in Aarhus, Denmark at Aarhus University Hospital. The Scandinavian School of Cardiovascular Technology is a joint venture education aimed primarily at Scandinavian perfusionists as a science based education at masters level. The Central Region in Denmark physically and administratively houses the school; Diploma for completed theoretical education is issued by Aarhus University and the European Board of Cardiovascular Perfusion (EBCP) accredits it. Completion of the practical education at the students "home clinic" and the theoretical education at Aarhus University Hospital automatically qualifies to EBCP certification.
The students are employed by their "home clinic" for 2 years to become practically trained in extracorporeal circulation during open heart surgery and related procedures. During that period they attend three modules with a duration of 6 weeks for each module at Aarhus University Hospital in Aarhus. The last of four semesters is devoted to conduction of a scientific project, which is terminated by writing a thesis and a public presentation and defense of the student´s scientific work.
