We present the results of a novel macroscopic/microscopic hybrid model, using a fully 3D non‐boostinvariant hydrodynamic calculation for the deconfined phase coupled with with a non‐equilibrium microscopic transport model (UrQMD) for the hadronic phase at RHIC. Advantages of this novel approach compared to pure hydrodynamics include the treatment of viscous effects in the hadronic phase as well as a fully self‐consistent calculation of the hadronic freeze‐out.
