|Cardiology Residency (ACVIM oder ECVIM):
Opening for a cardiology residency in Munich, Germany
Supervisor Dr. Gerhard Wess, Dipl ACVIM (cardiology), Dipl ECVIM (Cardiology and Internal Medicine)
Starting date: July 1st (or later) 2011
The cardiology residency program at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Munich, Germany is a three-year program designed to provide advanced clinical training in both medical and interventional cardiology. The program is approved by ACVIM and ECVIM and the candidate can choose which program they want to do.
The residency training includes a full range of both non-invasive (e.g. electrocardiographic, including Holter analysis and echocardiographic) as well as invasive (e.g. cardiac catheterization and selective angiography, invasive hemodynamic monitoring and electrophysiologic studies) and interventional (e.g. amplatzer or coil embolization, balloon valvuloplasty, temporary and permanent pacing) techniques. The resident will have primary case responsibility for small animal patients, and will examine large animal and exotic patients on a consultative basis.
Residents are required to participate in primary patient care, daily rounds, seminars and clinical conferences. The residents are partially responsible for the afterhours cardiology backup service.
As part of the training program, residents will participate in the clinical teaching of veterinary students. Time is provided for professional development. Residents are strongly encouraged to pursue professional interests, develop research projects and prepare manuscripts for publication. Participation in the cardiology section’s clinical research program is required as is the completion of at least one first-author research publication. The residency also provides the opportunity to attend lectures and rounds at one of Munich’s many neighbouring human medical centers.
The cardiology residency is focused on successful completion of ACVIM (or ECVIM) cardiology boards.
Successful applicants must be veterinarians and must meet the following requirements:
· Completed official internship or an equivalent training in small animal medicine and surgery.
·Letter of intent with short and long term personal goals.
·Complete CV with all previous academic and non-academic curricular activities.
·Three letters of recommendation together with the application.
·Verbal and written command of the German (and additional English) language.
The selection of residents is made on the basis of academic achievement, career objectives, letter of recommendation, interpretational skills, clinical skills, and pertinent experience. An interview will be conducted well in advance of filling the position.
