Educational programmes and resources
Educational programmes vary depending on each Working Group and can include the followings:
Webinars are live course transmitted over the web. They give you the opportunity to update your knowledge, interact with key opinion leaders, check your progress with online MCQs and gain CME credits! Sessions are also recorded so that you can still access resources for e-learning objectives.
Courses follow a practical and interactive 'how to' style with clear learning objectives. They can be submitted for accreditation. Courses take place at the European Heart House (Sophia-Antipolis, France) or at other venues in Europe.
Four Working Groups propose live courses. Read more and access resources below:
- All About Clinical Trials course from the ESC WG on Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy
- Coronary Physiology in the Catheterization Laboratory course from the ESC WG on Coronary Pathophysiology and Microcirculation
- Pulmonary Hypertension course from the ESC WG on Pulmonary Circulation and Right Ventricular Function
- Antithrombotic therapy course from the ESC WG on Thrombosis
Degrees or Spring Schools
The Working Group on Pulmonary Circulation and Right Ventricular Function endorse an Annual International Master’s Degree and a Biennial European Spring School.
In order to improve clinical practice, the ESC charges groups of European experts with the task of creating recommendations and guidelines for clinical practice, published as Task Force Reports, or other Study Groups.
Each Working Group has ever participated in the creation or reviewing of these guidelines. Discover below the list of published ESC Guidelines or browse on your Working Groups' education page.

During ESC Congress or Working Group annual meetings, some Working Groups acknowledge the outstanding work of young researchers in offering research awards.
Awardees are selected among best-submitted abstracts and are given a diploma plus a financial prize. They are also invited to be involved in the Working Group activities.
Discover the previous awardees and become the next!
- Atherosclerosis and Vascular Biology
- Pulmonary Circulation and Right Ventricular Function
- Development, Anatomy and Pathology
- Cardiac Cellular Electrophysiology
Open to Working Group on Thrombosis members, the Young Thrombosis Researchers Exchange Grant is a great opportunity for young investigators to conduct scientific research in Thrombosis. The grant covers the salary of a 12 month research proposal in an ESC member country or ESC Affiliated country and aims to:
- Support excellent clinical or basic research
- Facilitate transfer of knowledge and skills
- Give young researchers the opportunity to work with distinguished mentors
Trials and Registries Studies
In 2009, the ESC launched the EURObservational Research Programme (EORP) to provide a better understanding of medical practice, based on observational data collected with more robust methodological procedures.
This programme includes 20 different registries and four of them reach Working Group topics, thus directly implicating members of these Groups.
- Cardiomyopathy and Myocarditis Registry
- PeriPartum CardioMyopathy (PPCM) Registry
- Registry Of Pregnancy And Cardiac disease (ROPAC)
- TransCatheter Valve Treatment (TCVT) Registry
