Continuing professional development

Liryc is a unique platform with state-of-the-art equipment dedicated to studying heart arrhythmias.

The Institute provides a programme of innovative training including the virtual reality simulation programmes developed by Liryc’s researchers and doctors.

The continuing professional development given at Liryc provides participants with theoretical sessions on the basics, but also practical applications of the techniques. These sessions include intensive case studies, simulations, workshops with animal models and direct demonstrations.

To support the increase in education and training activities, the Institute is rolling out new innovative tools and equipment:

  • training on a pedagogic simulator like SIMRIC (Mechanically Realistic Pedagogical Simulator for Cardiac Interventions [SImulateur pédagogique Mécaniquement Réaliste pour les Interventions Cardiaque]),
  • digital training and the digital “cardiocases” library developed by IHU cardiologists in partnership with Stimuprat.

In the health crisis context linked to the spread of COVID-19 and in accordance with the recommendations of the University of Bordeaux, the IHU Liryc has decided to postpone the three Summer Schools planned for this year until 2021. Further information on dates and registration processes will be communicated at a later date.



Remotely learning course - ECG Interpretation

From April to June 2020, Liryc offers a free daily and remotely learning course, based on the interpretation of a surface ECG trace. The 30 to 45-minute classes, accessible on Zoom every day, are given by Prof. Bordachar, Prof. Strik and Prof. Sacristan, and are intended for medical students preparing for IECNs.


These courses are organised in partnership with Stimuprat.
