Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to dissemintate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
Our mission: To promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our goal is to reduce the burden in cardiovascular disease in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Our Mission is "to improve the quality of life of the population by reducing the impact of cardiac rhythm disturbances and reduce sudden cardiac death"
To improve quality of life and logevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
Working Groups goals is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
ESC Councils goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
Organised by the Council on Basic Science: Inspire a new generation of basic cardiovascular science leaders taken from among the most gifted science and medical graduates - Provide opportunities to meet face-to-face role models from an expert faculty of successful cardiovascular scientists.
Mainly early stage researchers (PhD and MD/PhD students in the first three years of their research) plus a few more experienced researchers whose PhD degree was obtained within the last 2 years. Delegate numbers limited to 70. All delegates bring a poster of their research, which is on display throughout the Summer School programme.
