Activity Description:

The 10th Winter Arrhythmia School is a collaboration between the Schulich Heart Program at University of Toronto, New York University, and Montreal Heart Institute. This year the educational program is divided into two streams: a devices stream and an electrophysiology stream, incorporated together for sessions of common interest. The combined sessions will be focused on innovations in device therapies, ablation approaches, as well as anti-arrhythmic and anti-thrombotic pharmacology.
