Statement of Need


Advances in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease (CVD) have yielded remarkably positive results, including a steady decline in CVD mortality across the globe. However, despite this remarkable progress, CVD remains the leading cause of death throughout the world and its prevalence remains high, making it a global public health priority and an intensive focus of research. Such research has led to new evidence that continues to accrue surrounding disease pathophysiology as well as strategies to enhance CVD prevention, evaluation and treatment. As care of the patient with CVD becomes more complex, it is imperative that cardiovascular professionals have an opportunity for a comprehensive review of evidence-based practices and exposure to state-of-the-art updates, innovative techniques and translational research on the diagnosis and management of cardiovascular disease.

Learning Objectives


  • Synthesize foundational and advanced cardiovascular disease knowledge, contemporary best practices, and effective care delivery for cardiovascular prevention, evaluation and management
  • Demonstrate appropriate interpretation of cardiovascular guidelines and diagnostic strategies needed in daily practice
  • Demonstrate improved auscultation, ECG interpretation and clinical decision-making
  • Utilize appropriate therapeutic strategies in the treatment of patients with hyperlipidemia and hypertension
  • Apply the latest evidence to the evaluation, medical management and surgical treatment of patients with valvular heart disease
  • Describe the best practices in the treatment of patients with heart failure including new drugs, surgical strategies and after-discharge care strategies
  • Identify best practices for the management of patients with atrial and ventricular arrhythmias

Target Audience


This conference is intended for practicing physicians in cardiology, internal medicine and family practice as well as cardiology fellows-in-training.
