The EAPC supports its young community with:
- Discounted EAPC Silver Membership
- Discounted ESC Preventive Cardiology congress registration for EAPC Silver Members under the age of 40
- Young Investigators Award sessions at ESC Preventive Cardiology congress
- Networking opportunities (open meetings, social events and more)
If you are a member of the EAPC, under 40 years of age and a young professional (cardiologist, general practitioner, nurse or allied professional) or a medical student, then you will automatically be part of this dynamic community. There is no need to apply.
