Pathophysiological and pathological aspects of electromechanical heart diseases University of Bordeaux

Course Overview

Learning objectives:

- Acquire theoretical knowledge regarding the state of the art in
pathophysiology of electromechanical heart diseases
- Understand how these knowledge were acquired with emphasis on
methodsand models, through hands-on practicals
- Be able to mobilize the acquired knowledge for the
recognition,diagnosis, evaluation, treatment and follow-up of heart
failure, as well as conduction and rhythm disorders

Learning Achievement


Course prerequisites

Prerequisites on pathologies will be addressed during previous UE of
the master program as well as on a numeric platform dedicated to the

- Personal computer & internet access

Grading Philosophy

Assessment methods specifically describe:

- Group presentations to a jury during the different modules (30%)
– 20minutes x 5
- Homework during the different modules (30%)
- Final written exam (40%) – 2h

Failure if:

Average grade is below 10 / 20

One of the 3 grades is below 8 / 20

In case of failure, a second session will be held, consisting of an
oral presentation and interrogation after self-study of an additional

Course schedule

The content will be divided into the following modules:

Pathophysiology/pathology of heart failure studied at different
integration levels: subcellular, cellular, organ, entire organism

Pathophysiology/pathology of conduction disorders

Pathophysiology/pathology of arrhythmia at different levels of
integration: sub cellular, cellular and entire organ

Interplays between heart failure, conduction disorders and arrhythmia

Course type

Standard classroom, flipped classroom, e-learning, practical work (in the laband in clinical departments/catheterization laboratories) - 75h of classroom instruction (flipped classroom, classical classroom, practical work, group work) - 150h of self-study The course will be split into 4 different modules, which will focus on 3 different pathophysiological domains of electromechanical heart diseases (heart failure, conduction disorders and arrhythmia) and their interplay. For each module, content delivery will be hybrid, with the following sequence: - Introductory phase: - Self-study - Classical and Flipped classroom approach - Complementary seminars - Practical work (experimentations) at the laboratory or in clinical departments - Staged problem-based learning phase: - Group brainstorming phase around a clinical problem - Staged problem solving approach: the groups are asked to propose a solution to each of the steps - Groups are evaluated on their ability to solve the tasks at hand and communicate their results adequately During the staged problem-based learning phase, students are split into small (3 person) groups of different backgrounds. Groups are mixed at each new module. The problem-based approach is used as a first evaluation for the students.
