Who we are

The ESC is a world leader in the discovery and dissemination of best practices in cardiovascular medicine. 

We are a not-for-profit medical society led by expert volunteers. We unite Member National Cardiac Societies, cardiovascular ESC sub-specialty communities, Affiliated Cardiac Societies, distinguished Fellows of the ESC and individual members from around the world. This network allows us to reach out to the global cardiology community and keep our finger on the pulse of cardiology. Diversity is our strength.
