Overview:

Our 35th annual course will again strive to present topics that highlight new evidence-based medicine findings reported within the last one to two years that impact clinical practice. These will range across a variety of cardiologic subspecialty interests including preventive cardiology, congenital heart disease, interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, cardiac imaging, cardiovascular pharmacotherapy, clinical cardiology, and cardiac surgery.

Our faculty will include a distinguished group of visiting academicians from North America together with outstanding teachers and clinicians from the University of California, San Francisco. We plan to offer adequate time after each lecture to facilitate discussion with audience questions directed to the faculty.

TARGET AUDIENCE
This course is intended for cardiovascular specialists, practicing cardiologists, internists, family physicians, cardiovascular and critical care nurses, and physician assistants.
