Event Overview
Welcome message:

This conference is designed for cardiologists, primary care physicians, advanced nurse practitioners, and nurses who have a special interest in cardiology. The symposium will focus on important practical and clinical issues faced daily by the health care professional. A unique educational design that combines live case presentations with echocardiography performed with multiple patients in real time as well as didactic lectures and dedicated discussions will contribute to an academically sound and clinically relevant review of cardiology.


The lectures will be provided by nationally recognized experts in their field. The guest faculty will be joined by members from The University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.


New this year is a live presentation of “Jeopardy“ sponsored by the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American College of Cardiology. Fellows from cardiology fellowship programs of Eastern Pennsylvania will compete live with interactive presentations that will include slides of clinical material such as electrocardiograms, echocardiograms, catheterization data, and more. The goal is for the winning team to continue to compete against other programs throughout the country and ultimately to make it to the finals at the national American College of Cardiology meeting.


Additionally, cardiology fellows will be presenting their original research as part of a poster competition. This will give cardiology fellows the opportunity to share their work and for attendees to gain insight into the future of cardiology. Their research posters will be on display in the foyer outside of the main conference room for attendees to view throughout the meeting. Awards will be given to fellows with the highest ranked academic posters.


Upon completion of the activity, participants should be able to:


Review the concept of progression/regression of atherosclerosis

Describe practical uses of the new heart failure drugs

Review the subcutaneous and intravascular defibrillators

Discuss the cardiology prevention guidelines

Explain arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy
