Statement of Need
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of mortality across the US and globally. It is essential that cardiovascular clinicians be both skilled and current on contemporary best practices to ensure that patients with CVD receive consistent, high-quality care. The annual New York Cardiovascular Symposium (NYCVS) is a 3-day course that is designed to provide clinicians with in-depth reviews of the latest science and cutting-edge advances. The broad-based course is organized around core areas of cardiovascular care and speaks to numerous disease processes that clinicians routinely encounter.

Target Audience
This course is intended for cardiovascular specialists, internists, family physicians, advanced practice nurses, nurses in cardiology and physician assistants.

Learner Objectives
The goal of this course is for participants to incorporate the most recent advances in cardiovascular care, including developments in the diagnosis, treatment and management of cardiovascular disease, and to ensure clinical relevance for the translation to practice. Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize emerging evidence on the clinical significance of nontraditional cardiovascular risk factors and risk markers
  • Discuss new insights into the management of patients with acute coronary syndromes
  • Identify evolving strategies for evaluating and managing coronary, cerebrovascular and venous thromboembolic disease
  • Summarize lifestyle trends and challenges in the prevention of cardiovascular disease
  • Evaluate contemporary approaches to evaluating and treating patients with heart failure and rhythm disorders
  • Identify current challenges in managing patients with aortic, mitral, and tricuspid valve disease or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
  • Review 2019 advances in the fields of genetics, cell regeneration and matrix biology.
