ESC Global Activities

Extending the ESC mission beyond European borders

ESC Global Affairs is a programme of international ESC educational courses built around a global network of international partnerships.


The European Society of Cardiology produces, organises and supports many scientific and educational activities, tools and products for cardiology professionals wishing to increase their knowledge and update their skills.

Using its network of national and regional partnerships, the ESC is reaching out to an even wider global audience, making us a truly international organisation catering to cardiology professionals.
