Activity Description:

This program is divided into two streams; a device stream and an electrophysiology stream comprising of lectures on complex ablations, channelopathies, imaging, pharmacology, stroke prevention, and anticoagulation management. The electrophysiology stream will be based on challenging cases of supraventricular arrhythmia ablations, ablation of persistent atrial fibrillation, and per-procedural care in interventional cardiac electrophysiology. The devices stream will be based on handling challenging tachy- and brady-programming in small classes and peer-to-peer teaching sessions. The program is delivered by top experts from around the globe in didactic lectures and small group teaching sessions. Past programs had the benefit of an excellent and renowned faculty and we aim to continue that tradition this year. The combined lessons will be focused on innovations in device therapies and ablation approaches, as well as antiarrhythmic pharmacology.
