Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of mortality across the US and globally. It is essential that cardiovascular clinicians be both skilled and current on contemporary best practices to ensure that patients with CVD receive consistent, high-quality care. The annual New York Cardiovascular Symposium (NYCVS) is a two-and-a-half-day course that is designed to provide clinicians with in-depth reviews of the latest science and cutting-edge advances. The broad-based course is organized around core areas of cardiovascular care and speaks to numerous disease processes that clinicians routinely encounter.
The goal of this course is for participants to incorporate the most recent advances in cardiovascular care, including developments in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of cardiovascular disease, and to ensure clinical relevance for the translation to practice.
