The ESC strives to ensure coherence and cohesion within cardiovascular medicine, as well as to keep ahead of the game with new developments in this very dynamic field of medicine.
The development of syllabi and curricula is a means to document and structure the field of cardiology. The aim is to provide a framework for training and lifelong learning in cardiology and its subspecialties.
The ESC Core Curriculum for the Cardiologist
The 2020 Core Curriculum for the Cardiologist provides a framework for the training required to practice as a cardiologist.
It is based on ESC clinical practice guidelines and has been developed with active participation of National Cardiac Societies, the Young Cardiology Community, trainees, and patients.
