Cardiologists of Tomorrow in Austria

One year after its foundation in 2012, the Cardiologists of Tomorrow (CoT) Austria was represented with 3 distinct scientific sessions at the annual meeting of the Austrian Society of Cardiology in Salzburg in June 2013.

The CoT Track included sessions on “Frontiers in basic Research”, “Career and development of young cardiologist” and “Cardinal symptoms in cardiology” aimed especially at doctors in training. ESC Vice-President for National Cardiac Societies and Fellows, Prof. J. Bax from the Netherlands presented the ESC views on training of cardiologists and Prof. Marc Pfeffer of Harvard Medical School gave a lecture on early career development for young cardiologists.

Prof. C. Lam from Singapore presented a key note lecture in basic research session. The session was followed by a come together with wine and cheese and gave young cardiologists opportunity to personally meet the experts.

Highlight of the congress was Prof. Eugene Braunwald’s key note lecture on congestive heart failure. He met members of the CoT Austria during Prof. Pieske’s President dinner beforehand.

At the congress the new logo of the CoT Austria, result of a logo design competition of Joanneum Research Graz, was officially presented and CoT members received new personal business cards.
In the exhibition area, a CoT Lounge was set up to represent the group and was very popular with congress attendees.

The official meeting of the working group CoT Austria at the congress was very well attended and new members were welcomed to conclude a successful first year with overall 51 official CoT Austria members.
