Tulane Cardiology to host interactive conference focused on heart and vascular diseases

October 02, 2023 8:45 AM

The New York Coronary and Vascular Summit (NYCVS) began with the goal of addressing complex coronary, peripheral vascular, and structural heart disease. A highlight of the one-day summit is the presentation of live cases, giving attendees a real-time, comprehensive view of the state-of-the-art techniques being used to treat these life-threatening conditions. This year, the summit will be hosted by Tulane University School of Medicine.

“The New York Coronary and Vascular Summit is a unique multidisciplinary educational meeting held for the first time in New Orleans,” said Jose Wiley, MD, MPH, Chief of the Section of Cardiology and Sidney W. and Marilyn S. Lassen Chair of Cardiovascular Medicine at Tulane University School of Medicine. “It joins national and local experts to discuss the latest treatment guidelines and most important controversies in the field of cardiovascular diseases.  The meeting will host an awaited debate and will stream four live cases transmitted from New York.”

The NYCVS is organized jointly with Stony Brook University School of Medicine and Tulane's Section of Cardiology in the Deming Department of Medicine. This year, the conference has also partnered with faculty from the Icahn School of Medicine at the Mount Sinai Hospital.

The meeting provides a maximum of 7.5 AMA PRA Category 1 credits (CME/MOC) and 7.5 nursing contact hours. Participants should finish the day knowing the appropriate interventional treatments for coronary artery disease, structural heart disease, and peripheral artery disease.

The New York Coronary and Vascular Summit will be held in-person and virtually on Friday, October 6. To learn more and register, click here.
