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.

ABIM MOC Accreditation

CME-MOC_badge-graphicSuccessful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 23 Medical Knowledge MOC points and Patient Safety MOC credit in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.

Please keep in mind the following dates when claiming your MOC points:
Physicians claiming MOC points for their participation in the symposium must complete the online program evaluation by December 16, 2019 in order for the MOC points to count toward any MOC requirements that are due by the end of 2019.

Evaluations received after December 16, 2019 and before March 16, 2020 will continue to be reported to the ABIM and any ABIM Board Certified physician who experienced a negative status change as a direct result of insufficient MOC points will have their status adjusted once the required number of points have been earned.
