European Heart Rythm Association

Dr Pieter van der Bijl earned his medical degree cum laude in 2005 from Stellenbosch University, and was admitted to the College of Physicians of South Africa in 2011 as a Fellow/specialist physician. In 2012 Dr Van der Bijl commenced training as a cardiologist in the Division of Cardiology at the same university, and subsequently qualified with the Certificate in Cardiology from the College of Physicians of South Africa in 2014. After a year of working as a cardiologist in a private practice, he embarked on a Cardiac Imaging Fellowship and a PhD in Cardiac Imaging (awarded in 2020) at Leiden University Medical Centre in the Netherlands, under the supervision of the renowned Prof. Jeroen J. Bax. Presently he is working as a consultant cardiologist in Cape Town, South Africa, whilst focusing on clinical cardiac imaging. His further career goals include establishing himself as a leader in cardiovascular multimodality imaging and clinically oriented, cardiac imaging research.
