It is a real pleasure to announce the 3rd Christmas Postgraduate Course of the Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust & Imperial College, the Cardiology Update London.
Cardiology and cardiovascular medicine in general, is a rapidly expanding field with impressive developments and innovations over the last years. For physicians, be it general practitioners, cardiologists or cardiac surgeons, it is therefore important to keep pace with a challenging environment. To that end, we have designed a postgraduate course, the Cardiology Update London, to summarize, at the end of the year, the most important new developments, innovations, but also failures that will all affect cardiovascular diagnosis and management in our everyday practice.
We have selected an international Faculty of high standing experts both from the Trust and worldwide, covering the entire spectrum of cardiovascular medicine from prevention to intervention, from valvular heart disease to heart failure, and from conservative management to intervention and surgical operations. Thus, the course will give an up-to-date overview about current diagnosis and management of the most important cardiovascular conditions during two days in London.
We would be most happy to welcome you at the Royal Society of Medicine in central London to enjoy two days of interactive education for the benefit of your practice and your patients.
