The London Postgraduate Course in Heart Failure Management (PCHF) is a 2-year course consisting of 6 modules, each module with a 3.5-day duration. The course includes a total of 160 hours of classroom time and 140 hours of self-study, and its successful completion leads to a Certificate in Heart Failure Management.
Each of the modules will be followed by a multiple-choice examination. An examination can be repeated once, if the performance is unsatisfactory. The examinations of at least 5 modules will have to be passed successfully to be eligible for certification.
The course will be held in English.
Organisation and Project Management
The candidates will be selected by members of the selection committee based on their interest in heart failure as documented in their motivation letter, rotations in a heart failure unit and/or publications in this field.

Candidates at the end of their training or junior staff members will have priority among the applicants.
Applicants are asked to submit the following documents in English:
- Curriculum vitae
- List of publications
- Grades of medical school
- Motivation letter
- Recommendation letter of their supervisor
- Outline of future career
The tentative course fee is GBP 3000. However, it cannot yet be guaranteed. The definite course fee will be communicated by May 31, 2020. The application becomes binding, when the course fee is confirmed.
Travel and accommodation costs are not included and will have to be paid on an individual basis.
In case of a cancellation before 30 November 2020 there will be a repayment of the course fee less GBP 200 for administrative costs. After this date we regret that no more refund is possible.
London offers a great variety of hotels. The course organisation has therefore not reserved any hotels. Hotels can easily be found via the usual hotel booking platforms.
