The course is designed to provide a comprehensive review of current concepts in the management of cardiovascular disease for practicing physicians, physicians in training and other healthcare providers. It includes live case demonstrations and practical workshops in cardiovascular procedures. The program brings a world class cardiology symposium including life cases to physicians in training and other health care professionals who may not be able to travel to other parts of the world where such conferences are more commonly held.
The topics covered would include Heart failure, Coronary Artery Disease, Valvular disease, Cardiac Arrhythmia and Cardiovascular disease prevention.
