Many thanks to our 2016 attendees for another successful symposium!

Here’s what you told us…

I would love to attend this symposium every year. 

Excellent Symposium.

This was a great symposium and very well organized. 

The ambiance, the speakers, the food and the organization was wonderful. 

Keep up the super great job!!

I've been getting my echo CMEs exclusively with this Baptist Hospital conference for many years.

It was a great symposium that was well organized by Dr. Ozner and his team.

I regret not attending in the past years, but I'm looking forward of being part of the Baptist Echocardiography Symposium family.

We look forward to seeing you back this year!

The Echocardiography Symposium held last year gathered physicians from throughout the country to learn from the experts. Here are some photos from the symposium. Many thanks to our 2016 attendees for another successful symposium!​
