Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to disseminate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care.
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
Our mission is to promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our mission is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Improving the quality of life and reducing sudden cardiac death by limiting the impact of heart rhythm disturbances.
Our mission is to improve quality of life and longevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
The ESC Working Groups' goal is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
The ESC Councils' goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
Organised by the Council on Basic Science: Inspire a new generation of basic cardiovascular science leaders taken from among the most gifted science and medical graduates - Provide opportunities to meet face-to-face role models from an expert faculty of successful cardiovascular scientists.
Mainly early stage researchers (PhD and MD/PhD students in the first three years of their research) plus a few more experienced researchers whose PhD degree was obtained within the last 2 years. Delegate numbers limited to 70.
All delegates bring a poster of their research, which is on display throughout the Summer School programme.
