Cardiac EP

Dernière mise à jour :

The Cardiac EP Graduate Program provides integrated, international and interdisciplinary training, throughout the Master's degree and PhD. It aims to train high-level specialists from various academic fields in cardiac electrophysiology and bio-engineering.

The Program

The Cardiac Electrophysiology Graduate Program covers a wide range of topics concerning cardiovascular physiology and pathophysiology and in particular the mechanisms involved in heart arrhythmias, and the development of innovative treatments in this field. It was created with the support of the Plan Investissement d'Avenir, or Investment for the Future Program (project: Graduate School for junior researchers at the University of Bordeaux / UB GRS, reference 20-SFRI-0001).

Our teams and partners have diverse and complementary skills, enabling the program to tackle the issue of arrhythmias using both fundamental (biology, imaging, signal processing, modelling) and clinical approaches.

Master's and PhD students benefit from a variety of educational programs, ambitious training initiatives, international conferences and high-quality research facilities.

Some key figures

  • 1 Master's program
  • 5 teaching units
  • 770 hours of basic/translational or clinical research experience

Innovation_Idee.pngWhy join the Cardiac Electrophysiology program?

  • To join a learning environment supported by the scientific expertise of the Liryc University Hospital Institute and the cutting-edge facilities of internationally recognised research.
  • To access an international scientific network and the latest innovations in the study of heart rhythms and arrhythmias.
  • To attend training courses focused on practical learning and research internships.

Joining the program at Master's level

You can apply for the Electromechanical Heart Diseases Master's program (specialising in Health). You will be accepted directly into the second year of the Master's program.

Before applying:

  1. Check out the full details of the Master's program courses, the IHU Lyric website and the language in which they are taught.
  2. Find out about the registration fees and the cost of studying in Bordeaux.
  3. Identify the application procedure best suited to your situation. Are you an international candidate? Visit this page to check whether your are eligible for the Etudes En France (EEF) joint admission and visa application process.

Admission requirements:

  • Students in medicine in the French education system must have validated the DFASM3 or DFASP2 (Diploma of Advanced Training in Medical Sciences).
  • Students - whether they have studied in France or not - must hold a 4-year degree in medical sciences, biomedical sciences, biological sciences, veterinary sciences or pharmaceutical sciences or engineering (including CPGE or Grandes Ecoles).
  • A very good level of English is required (at least C1, according to the CEFR scale), as all courses are taught in this language.

Joining the program at PhD level

Are you enrolled in a PhD with the Doctoral School of Health and Life Sciences? The "Cardiac EP cohort" welcomes you and the program's Master's students, with the aim of strengthening ties between junior researchers and the rest of the scientific community.

  • to join the cohort: information coming soon

Globe.png Thinking about a mobility project, but need financial assistance?

If your project does not meet the requirements of other international mobility funding options, you can apply for support from the program in order to attend a conference, carry out research, attend a training course or summer school, or any other occasional event abroad.

  • contact us for more information on how we can support occasional international mobility projects

Funding opportunities and PhD positions

Funding for a PhD position in Cardiac EP can be obtained within the framework of the Doctoral School of Health and Life Sciences selection process.

The Cardiac EP program also has funding options available for a PhD position (information coming soon).
