She continued her education, graduating from the University of Düsseldorf.  After graduation, she worked as an assistant physician working her way to assistant medical director.  In 2019, she was named “Medizinerin des Jahres 2019 (Physician of the Year 2019) by the German Medical Club.

Wow!  An artificial heart, does that really work or is it more of a temporary thing?
