Knowledge is vital – Research in the Elisabeth Hospital Essen

As an academic teaching hospital of the University of Duisburg-Essen and one of the most modern and capable hospitals in Germany, the Elisabeth Hospital Essen has made a point of passing on knowledge by lecturing, tutoring students in their practical year, or by offering students to attend our work and special training courses.

The departments take part in various studies and initiate research projects themselves, and they also contribute to the development of technical procedures. The Clinic for Cardiology and Angiology is equipped with its own center of studies to implement clinical application research, and it also participates in numerous national and international multicenter studies. Some of the research focuses are pacemaker therapy, electrophysiology, and most of all cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. The scientific work is endorsed by a considerable number of publications and lectures.
