26 MP4 + 25 PDF Files


Our 40th annual course will again strive to present topics that highlight new evidence-based medicine findings reported within the last one to two years that impact clinical practice. These will range across a variety of cardiologic subspecialty interests including heart failure, arrhythmias, cardiac surgery, gene therapy, aortic diseases, prevention and artificial intelligence. Our faculty will include a distinguished group of visiting academicians along with outstanding teachers and clinicians from the University of California, San Francisco.

This course is intended for cardiovascular specialists, practicing cardiologists, internists, family physicians, cardiovascular and critical care nurses, and physician assistants.


An attendee completing this course should be able to:

  • Provide the best management of coronary heart disease, hypertension, lipid disorders, diabetes, systolic and diastolic heart failure, atrial fibrillation and flutter, STEMI and non-STEMI, thromboembolic disease
  • Refine considerations for atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and ventricular tachycardia ablation
  • Apply he best considerations of percutaneous interventions for coronary heart disease
  • Improve the use of anti-platelet and anti-coagulation therapy for cardiovascular diseases
  • Identify risk stratification of cardiovascular disease
  • Optimize management of peripheral artery disease
  • Identify and treat accordingly, the differing pathophysiology of diseases and treatment options among racial and ethnic groups
  • Enhance management of COVID-19 and its cardiovascular complications
