Program Description

Cardiologists are trained during their fellowship years in the latest techniques, technologies, standards of practice and guidelines for patient care. However, the practice of medicine changes rapidly and the discipline of interventional cardiology changes, dramatically, each year. Changes in interventional cardiology directly impact patient care and require specific changes to physician practice. To stay current, physicians rely on journal articles, interaction with colleagues and isolated lectures throughout the year. The primary purpose of Cardiovascular Interventions is to provide the practicing physician with a concentrated exposure to new developments in interventional cardiology that will positively influence patient outcomes.

Through a program of lectures from world experts, live demonstration procedures and participant-faculty interactions, attendees will learn the latest advances in interventional cardiology. After completing this program, participants will return to their practice environment armed with the latest evidence base and practical information to improve patient outcomes.

Target Audience

This course is designed for interventional cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, vascular surgeons, and internists with an interest in interventional cardiology. No experience is in interventional cardiology is required, but a basic understanding of the field is recommended.
