Who We Are

The ESC is a world leader in the discovery and dissemination of best practices in cardiovascular medicine


We are a volunteer-led, not-for-profit medical society. Our members and decision-makers are scientists, clinicians, nurses and allied professionals working in all fields of cardiology.

We unite national cardiac societies from around the world. This unique network allows us to understand the impact of cardiovascular disease and how we can better reduce its burden. Our diversity is our strength.
