Please join us for the third Philadelphia Cardiovascular Summit. Our goal is to deliver a comprehensive, multifaceted program that brings together a diverse group of health care professionals for in-depth presentations and interactive discussions on innovative approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease.

We are planning a unique and innovative event that will concentrate on the multidisciplinary approach to four subjects encountered in clinical cardiology in which there is continuing evolution in their data, understanding and management: right heart failure/tricuspid valve disease, pathology of the aortic valve and aorta, adult congenital heart disease, and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. We will also be exploring the increasing intersection of social media and medicine.

The program will feature high-level didactic sessions, case presentations and interactive discussions. Educational lectures will be delivered by the region’s most esteemed leaders in the field of cardiology and cardiovascular surgery.

We are pleased to welcome you to our third year of the Philadelphia Cardiovascular Summit in the beautiful Rittenhouse Square area of Philadelphia.
