The Division of Cardiology offers several continuing medical education (CME) courses throughout the year. Featuring experts from Emory and other nationally renowned faculty, these courses provide opportunities for physicians, nurses, and other allied health professionals to learn about the latest advances in a variety of topics related to cardiovascular medicine.
All CME events are accredited by the American Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
Cardiology in Primary Care
October 12-14, 2017
Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Hotel & Conference Center
3405 Lenox Rd NE
Atlanta, GA 30326
With the restructuring of health care in the United States, one of the major changes in patient care has been a shift from subspecialty care to primary care. In addition, cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death and disability in the U.S. As a result, much of the burden of caring for patients with cardiovascular disease will fall on primary care physicians. This meeting is designed to provide an update in the diagnosis and management of cardiovascular disease for primary care providers.
Emory Conference Center Hotel

Atlanta, GA 30329
The Emory Practical Intervention Course (EPIC) has been an annual event since 1981 providing training for thousands of interventional cardiologists from the United States and abroad. Last year, EPIC became the Emory Practical Intervention Course-Southeast Consortium (EPIC SEC) with twelve academic centers participating. This year we are honored to announce that fifteen academic medical centers will actively contribute to this clinical, educational and research consortium and to EPIC SEC.
EPIC SEC is a cutting-edge update of the newest strategies in coronary, structural heart, and peripheral vascular imaging, physiology and intervention. Cardiovascular practice has never evolved more rapidly than today as cardiologists and surgeons collaborate to offer exciting new options for patients in need of percutaneous and minimally invasive hybrid therapies. Arteries, valves, veins, infarcting and hypertrophied myocardium and other anatomic sites are targets for intervention and symptom relief and are involved in a vast array of cardiovascular pathologies including STEMI, unstable angina/non-STEMI, cardiogenic shock, aortic stenosis, mitral regurgitation, acute stroke, claudication and limb salvage, chronic valvular and perivalvular defects, adult congenital heart disease, and many other conditions. This course will feature the cumulative wisdom of 17 academic centers with live case demonstrations, lectures, presentations and discussions of complex cases, debates between well-known interventionalists and surgeons, and the opportunity for insightful audience participation and discussion. The national concern regarding appropriate selection for diagnostic studies and intervention will be addressed in detail. The conference will feature joint sessions, as well as dedicated tracks for coronary, structural and peripheral intervention.
