I remember the first memory of reading about “Netherlands” as the country of Windmills and Tulips when I was a young kid in school. Later I studied Medicine, followed by speciality training in Cardiology from Narayana Hrudayalaya institute of Cardiac Sciences,Bangalore. I was looking forward for further specialty training, and I was offered Fellowship-PhD program in Heart Arrhythmias here.  Maastricht University Medical Centre being associated with Pillars of this field like Prof. Wellens, Prof. Brugada, Dr. Josephson has been in the forefronts. Maastricht University has been the Pioneer for “Problem based learning”.

Since joining, there has been no looking back in terms of amazing technical expertise, quality training and dedicated workforce available here. Maastricht is widely known as a city of history, culture, local folklore and education. Situated beside River Maas, it is green, clean, crowd free, secure, good social life and cosmopolitan city with helpful people who make you feel at home. I enjoy my stay here especially being close to Belgium and Germany. However, I do miss sometimes the delicious spicy Indian food, however with a big Asian shop in the city and a growing Indian population, I feel better for sure.
