Working Group on Pulmonary Circulation and Right Ventricular Function

We bring together healthcare professionals who have a special interest in pulmonary vascular diseases and right ventricular function from across medicine to play an active scientific and clinical role in our community.

The Working Group supports a wide variety of initiatives from basic science to clinical medicine, to stimulate debate, to organize education and training,  to undertake scientific papers and surveys, and to provide clinical management guidelines and recommendations in the fields of acute pulmonary embolism, pulmonary hypertension and right ventricular function.

Membership of ESC Working Groups is free


Membership is open to physicians (including cardiologists, pneumonologists, internists, intensive care specialists, paediatricians and rheumatologists), cardiothoracic surgeons and nurses.
Members are expected to take an active part in the activities of the Working Group by organizing and participating in its activities, including its Nucleus.
