ESC and subspecialty endorsements constitute official recognition by the ESC of the high quality of educational programmes and their compliance with ESC endorsement criteria.

The application review is performed according to ESC endorsement criteria.

Webinars (online events of 1 hour or less), university courses or courses including sessions held at non-consecutive dates are not included in the ESC Endorsement Policy for in-person and/or online events.
