Our 39th 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 heart failure, arrhythmias, cardiac surgery, gene therapy, aortic diseases, prevention and artificial intelligence.

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.

All sessions will be recorded and made available to participants for online viewing 30 days post course.

This course is intended for cardiovascular specialists, practicing cardiologists, internists, family physicians, cardiovascular
