Comprehensive Center for Cardiovascular Medicine


Cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death world-wide. It is also the leading cause of hospital admissions and of physical disability and a major cost burden in health care. Cardiovascular disorders have multifactorial etiologies and affect almost all organ systems. Diagnosis, treatment and research endeavors focusing on these disorders therefore require close collaboration across medical specialties.

The central concern is patient centred, cutting-edge medical care and focused on the interdisciplinary interaction of a wide range of specialists and professional groups within the cardiovascular field. The aim is not only to improve patient care but also to improve the possibilities for science and teaching in the interaction of the disciplines involved. This should enable innovative research goals to be achieved more quickly and efficiently.
