The esc young community

ESC Young communityThe ESC Young Community comprises 8 groups: one for general cardiology and 7 for sub-specialties.

cardiologists of tomorrow - general cardiology


During ESC Congress 2009 in Barcelona, young cardiologists from France carried out a survey to find out about young cardiologists organisations across Europe. The results identified a need for a strong young community and thus the ESC decided to take the lead and look for support within the structure of the ESC National Cardiac Societies.

The initiative "ESC Cardiologists of Tomorrow" represents the young ESC members willing to shape the future of General Cardiology.
