Sports Cardiology


Sports Cardiology is an emerging field within cardiology. ESC Guidelines have outlined the scope and clinical statements on diagnostics, therapy and exercise recommendations have been published. However, the practical aspects in addition to the scientific and clinical background are often lacking in those becoming interested in preventive and sports cardiology.

The three days seminar will give practical recommendations on the basis of general cardiology for those starting as well as those already practicing within the field. The course will give an in-depth overview on the specific aspects of echocardiology and exercise testing in sports cardiology. In practical sessions patients will be on site and diagnostics will be assessed in athletes, leisure time sportsmen with and without cardiovascular disease.

The days can be booked as a total or each day separately. Low numbers of attendees of 15-20 will assure a hands-on teaching atmosphere. A certificate will be handed out after completion of each course.
