Activity Description:

The Heart Rhythm Society's annual Board Review Course is the preferred resource for physicians seeking a comprehensive review of content focused on preparation for the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) certification and recertification examinations in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology. The course is led by internationally recognized faculty members, many of whom have served on the ABIM, and offers attendees a chance to review the essential exam areas described in the ABIM blueprint in both didactic and case-based forms. For those not preparing for the exam, the course provides an excellent update and overview of cardiac electrophysiology.
