ReachHigher with Priv.-Doz. Dr. med. Peter Schott

Lecture: “Interventional Cardiology – Review of the Last Decades and Future Perspectives” (Lecture Language: English)

Historical context is of high importance in all scientific fields – including medicine. In his ReachHigher lecture, Priv.-Doz. Dr. med. Peter Schott will therefore give an overview of the history and milestones in the development of Cardiology into an independent discipline. The motto will be “From the simple stethoscope to high-tech interventions on the heart”. In addition, the professional opportunities available as a Cardiologist in a mid-level hospital will be presented.

Dr. Schott is Medical Director of the UMFST-UMCH Teaching Hospital Werra-Meissner Clinic in Eschwege, Germany, as well as Chief Physician of Cardiology and Internal Intensive Care Medicine. His clinical focus is on interventional cardiology and multimodal therapy of heart failure. He completed his clinical and scientific training at the University of Göttingen from 1995-2009. In addition to his clinical work, his scientific focus is on the molecular and protein biological aspects of mechanically induced myocardial hypertrophy and failure.



Entertaining, innovative and condensed: At ReachHigher, experts from a network of extraordinary personalities give lectures on the topics of medicine and research as well as leadership/motivation.
