What is RISE @ ESC Congress 2024?

The RISE Conference is a full-day programme focused on bringing women physicians together with the organisations that represent them for a dynamic day of professional development.

RISE was developed to provide women across medical specialties with an opportunity to build non-clinical skills that are critical to career advancement. 

In 2024, RISE will focus on the topic of leadership, where attendees will learn about how to develop their personal leadership style and access training, insights, and opportunities for their future success.

A reception for all RISE faculty and attendees will be held immediately following the conference to further support networking.

RISE @ ESC Congress 2024 will take place on Thursday, 29 August from 8:30 to 17:30 at the ExCeL London (West Entrance).
