Welcome to the European Society of Cardiology. Our mission: to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe
 

Basic Invasive Cardiac Electrophysiology

09 Oct 2014 - 11 Oct 2014 , Sophia Antipolis - France

 




The Scientific Programme




This educational programme is accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) for 15 CME credit(s)


Course objectives

Cases are presented by a faculty member and worked-out in interaction with the audience, focusing on both diagnostic and therapeutic aspects.

The cases are supplemented by short slide-presentations, highlighting some aspects and/or literature evidence. Interaction with the audience will be stimulated by voting. The results are shown anonymous.

Target Audience

This Basic course in Invasive Cardiac Electrophysiology addresses 1st year EP fellows and fellows who need to review fundamentals in EP.
