Dear Colleagues

Cardiology Update belongs to the major meetings in the field of cardiology in Europe. Following a long tradition this will be the 23rd Cardiology Update Course to be held every second year in Davos, Switzerland. The course is a joint educational programme from the Zurich Heart House / University of Zurich, the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and the University of Michigan School of Medicine. A distinguished international teaching faculty contributes to an outstanding programme on latest scientific and therapeutic developments as well as on new intervention and treatment strategies in cardiology.

The educational objectives are to review and disseminate the latest knowledge about advances in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease and to provide a platform for an open dialogue with international opinion leaders in cardiology. Cardiology Update is designed for clinicians specialised in cardiology, internal and general medicine. The number of delegates coming from all over Europe, North America and Asia was steadily increasing during the past years leading to a dedicated and constant audience of around 550 attendees.

This highly acclaimed, CME-accredited programme provides four days of comprehensive education in all major areas of cardiovascular medicine, including atherosclerosis, risk factors and prevention, coronary artery disease, thrombosis, acute coronary syndromes, revascularisation strategies, arrhythmias, cardiomyopathies, valve disease, heart failure and imaging modalities. The features of the course are state of the art lectures, interactive case presentations and clinical decision seminars, video life cases, meet the expert sessions as well as poster sessions. The teaching faculty consists of roughly 100 international experts and opinion leaders in cardiology. The spirit of the course is a stimulating working and learning environment combined with a variety of informal events and opportunities for direct interactions between faculty members, sponsors and participants.

We would be delighted to welcome you at the 23rd Cardiology Update Davos
from 16-20 February 2019.
