Supporting Women in Cardiology


Cardiology is undergoing a gender flip, with a huge increase in the number of women training to be cardiologists. To address this, the ESC has launched the Women in ESC initiative to ensure that women coming into the field are sufficiently armed for successful careers.

The course focuses on different ways of dealing with organisational challenges and provides women with tools for finding their own leadership style.

Gender, Culture and Leadership in Cardiology

17 ESC countries have been selected to participate to an ESC survey to better understand the working environment and challenges for cardiology professionals today.

The survey results, presented at ESC Congress 2017, will help the ESC to provide the appropriate support to cardiologists and cardiovascular scientists, as well as help the ESC to be a more effective advocate for its members.
