eLearning, professional unity and accreditation among new ESC President’s top priorities

Fausto Pinto, who became President of the ESC today, says plans to strengthen the accreditation systems in cardiology, the ESC eLearning platform and the role of the Society in Brussels will be high on his agenda:  'Why should patients accept treatment by doctors unless they’ve the confidence in knowing they’ve achieved pre-defined levels of proficiency.'

Far-reaching programme of ESC Registries

Since its introduction in 2008 the ESC’s registry programme - known as the EURObservational Research Programme, or EORP - has grown from just two pilot surveys (both in heart failure) to a broad-ranging and far-reaching programme of 13 registries arranged within the categories of ‘General’, ‘Sentinel’, ‘Special’ and ‘Prevention’ (the last of which now includes both arms, hospital and primary care, of the latest round of the Euroaspire data collection and analysis).

A wealth of opportunities for young cardiologists

The ESC young community (under 36-year old) represents the ESC’s future. Founded in 2010 with the Cardiologists of Tomorrow, its number increases year on year. They are all embedded in different ESC Constituent Bodies. Currently eight ESC young groups are supporting a broad range of cardiology fields of expertise. In 2014, more than 500 young cardiologists benefited from free ESC Congress 2014 registration, thanks to Cardiologists of Tomorrow.
