33rd Annual Cardiovascular Interventions

Location: Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines – 10950 N Torrey Pines Rd, La Jolla, CA 92037

Cardiologists are trained during their fellowship years in the latest techniques, technologies, standards of practice, and guidelines for patient care. However, the practice of medicine changes rapidly and the discipline of interventional cardiology changes dramatically each year. These changes directly impact patient care and require specific updates to physician practice. The primary purpose of the Cardiovascular Interventions series is to provide the practicing physician and cardiovascular care team with a concentrated exposure to the latest developments in interventional cardiology to positively influence patient outcomes via live cases and expert lectures and panels.

Target Audience: This live and in-person symposium is designed for interventional cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, vascular surgeons, internists, NPs, PAs, nurses, cath lab technicians, perfusionists, registered cardiovascular invasive specialists, radiologic technologists, and those with a special interest in interventional cardiology. No experience in interventional cardiology is required, however a basic understanding of the field is recommended.

Course Director: Paul S. Teirstein, MD, DNBPAS, FACC, FSCAI

Scripps Course Co-Directors: Matthew J. Price, MD, FACC, FSCAI; Richard A. Schatz, MD, FACC; Curtiss T. Stinis, MD, FACC, FSCAI
