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.
