Registration is now open for the 2019 International VT Symposium!

The Heart Rhythm Society is cosponsoring with the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine Office of Continuing Medical Education the 14th Annual International Symposium on Ventricular Arrhythmias: Pathophysiology and Therapy.

Join course directors Frank Marchlinski, MD, David Callans, MD, Vivek Reddy, MD, Srinivas Dukipatti, MD and Andre d'Avila, MD PhD and over 70 internationally recognized experts from 12 countries. This year's symposium is cohosted by the EP programs at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and The Mount Sinai Hospital and will be held Friday and Saturday, October 11th and 12th at the Hyatt at the Bellevue in Philadelphia.

State-of-the-art information about the molecular building blocks, genetics, anatomy, substrate, mechanisms and treatment of ventricular arrhythmias will be presented. Live cases broadcast from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and expert panel discussions will highlight the latest techniques and technologies and identify current challenges and future directions for VT ablation.

This year, we are inviting current EP fellows as well as early career EPs (electrophysiologists within 5 years of training) to submit manuscripts on some aspect of the diagnosis or treatment of ventricular arrhythmias. In prior years we based the competition on abstracts, but this year we will be accepting manuscripts which will be judged by a panel comprised of the meeting organizers. The authors of the three best manuscripts will be invited to the Symposium (travel and lodging expenses will be paid) to present their work. The author of the winning abstract will be awarded a prize of $1000 and a plaque to commemorate the event. 

Manuscripts must represent novel work (not previously published or presented) and are limited to 5000 characters; figures and/or tables may be included, but count for 500 characters each. The submission deadline is September 1st. To be eligible, you must be an EP fellow or early career EP (within 5 years post training).

Submissions, along with updated CV, should be emailed by September 1, 2019 to: JosephsonAward@uphs.upenn.edu
