Dear Colleague,

You are expressly invited to attend the 17th Annual Intensive Review of Cardiology: Comprehensive Update and Advances, August 21 – 24, 2016, at the InterContinental Hotel and Bank of America Conference Center on the Cleveland Clinic main campus in Cleveland, Ohio.

This educational activity continues to be a wonderful forum to critically review current thinking and management of all the major cardiovascular disciplines. The focus will be on the delivery of contemporary medicine, including complex patient management and decision-making for practicing cardiologists. Cardiovascular board certification and re-certification examination candidates may also find this review useful.

This year we have a simultaneous session to address the needs of advanced practice nurses. We will also have three ABIM Maintenance of Certification Learning Sessions to assist physicians with their ABIM recertification or for those who would like an in-depth review.

You will find this symposium to be fun, clinically relevant, and stimulating. Get engaged in integrated audience interaction with reviews of cases, images, and relevant data during the lectures.

The comprehensive four-day program will be memorable. The review highlights clinical evaluation and management of the patient encountered in daily practice. Current ACC/AHA guidelines supporting treatment and management recommendations and treatment controversies and dilemmas will answer questions you may have.

Introducing an additional educational opportunity on Saturday, August 20th:

11:00 am – 5:00 pm
Advances in Prevention of Coronary Artery Disease
A Presymposium Focusing on Advances in Prevention of Coronary Artery Disease

Many other important topics and cases will be included. The Bank of America Conference Center has exceptional amenities that enhance learning and comfort. As codirectors, we truly hope you will be able to join us in August for this exciting and memorable educational activity that impacts your clinical decision making.

Sincerely,

Samir Kapadia, MD, FACC
Venugopal Menon, MD, FACC

Who should attend?

Practicing cardiologists and cardiology fellows, physician assistants, nurses, advanced practice nurses, and mid-level practitioners seeking a comprehensive review of contemporary cardiovascular medicine will benefit from this Symposium.

Intensive Review of Cardiology will help you:

  • Summarize results from research studies investigating the biologic basis and pathophysiology of cardiovascular diseases (CVD);
  • Summarize results from recently completed and ongoing clinical trials for CVD and describe their potential impact on current medical practices;
  • Present safety and efficacy data on the new drugs, formulations, and indications for CVD and describe their implications for clinical care;
  • Describe the recent surgical innovations, including devices, techniques, and approaches for CVD;
  • Review new developments in CV imaging technologies and assess their potential use in clinical care;
  • Review recently revised guidelines related to CVD management strategies and assess their implications for clinical practice;
  • Use a self-evaluation strategy to identify and fill gaps in medical knowledge and clinical judgment to successfully complete the ABIM Maintenance of Certification or recertification.

ABIM Maintenance of Certification Learning Sessions

The Maintenance of Certification Learning Sessions will feature the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) 2016 Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology, 2016 Update in Interventional Cardiology, and the 2016 Update in Cardiovascular Disease knowledge modules. Clinical experts will lead interactive and collaborative in-depth discussions on each case-based question. Session attendees will actively participate in weighing the evidence case-by-case, discuss the options with the faculty and other participants, and identify the most appropriate answer to the ABIM questions.

As a result of attending these learning sessions, you will be able to use a self-evaluation strategy to identify and fill gaps in medical knowledge and clinical judgment in order to successfully complete the ABIM Maintenance of Certification or recertification.

Each module is worth 10 points toward Maintenance of Certification.
