Scientific Programme

ESC Congress 2012

 The scientific programme will highlight the most relevant issues in the diagnosis, management and treatment of cardiovascular disease, ranging from basic to clinical and population research.

 The chosen spotlight of the congress is “From Bench to Practice”. Translating innovative science into daily clinical practice is a challenge shared by clinical scientists and clinical physicians. Only through concerted efforts can we continue to bring further improvements to patient care. By choosing translational science as its 2012 congress spotlight, the ESC will encourage critical discussion of new techniques and their rapid transfer into clinical medicine.

Continuing Medical Education Credits

The ESC Congress 2012 is accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) and by the European Accreditation Council in CME (EACCME) for 21 hours of external CME credits.
Each participant should claim only those hours of credit that have actually been spent in the educational activity.
EBAC works according to the quality standards of the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME), which is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS).
The signature of a cooperation agreement between EBAC and UEMS/EACCME facilitates the recognition of EBAC/EACCME CME credits at a national level in the majority of European Countries. EBAC / EACCME credits are also recognised by the American Medical Association towards the Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA).

Attendance Certificates for participants will be provided on-site upon request.
