ESC Education Conference

Experience from all over the ESC to inform best cardiology training and cardiovascular education

The ESC Education Conference is an initiative of the ESC Education Committee, held at the European Heart House. We invite all National Directors of Training within the ESC to come together to discuss the ESC Educational Offering and to be involved in the further development of educational activities that can improve cardiology and cardiovascular education throughout Europe.

2015 ESC Education Conference: education across EU member countries

9-10 December 2015

47 countries represented  

Read the publication - The Role of the ESC in Education

"It was apparent throughout the conference that the ESC has a central role in providing educational materials. While the ESC does not have a legal mandate to impose educational and training standards in individual countries, it is uniquely well placed to develop standards recognized  and endorsed by a broad base of European Cardiologists."
