What can we offer your organisation?
The status of Affiliated Cardiac Society comes from the wish of the ESC Board to create a platform for Cardiac Societies and other professional bodies interested in cardiovascular medicine, based outside Europe and the Mediterranean basin, to enable their closer collaboration with the ESC – more about the programme.
What’s in it for your affiliated members?
Individual members of the Affiliated Cardiac Societies are entitled to the same benefits as members of the ESC National Cardiac Societies (European and Mediterranean countries) under the condition that they can provide written confirmation of membership – more about member benefits.
