We are a not-for-profit medical society led by expert volunteers. We unite member National Cardiac Societies, and cardiovascular ESC sub-specialty communities.
Harmonising care, maintaining professional standards and informing European policy makers.
The ESC comprises 27 cardiovascular subspecialty communities covering the full spectrum of cardiology.They include our Associations, Working Groups and Councils, enabling us to provide in-depth, expert knowledge to all cardiovascular clinicians and researchers.
ESC member National Cardiac Societies are involved in advancing ESC science and sharing this knowledge and best practice with their members.
Over 60 years of fighting cardiovascular disease - our roots and growth.
