The Meeting is a primarily clinically designed for cardiologists and cardiology fellows, but also for other professionals and specialists taking part in all relevant fields of cardiovascular medicine. The main aim is to provide a comprehensive state of the art overview of contemporary cardiology, including cutting edges in science and clinical practice, with a special emphasis on the newest ESC guidelines, as the Dubrovnik Highlights Meeting takes a month and a half after the annual main ESC Congress. Beside invited lectures from the leading representatives of various specialties in Cardiology, the Programme will be enriched with young cardiologists’ competition in presenting challenging clinical cases and with original contributions of our attendees in a form of moderated posters. The abstracts will be published in Cardiologia Croatica – the official journal of the Croatian Cardiac Society, an active member of the ESC network of cardiology journals. Last but not least, the best posters and clinical cases are going to be awarded at the Closing Session of the Meeting. Satellite symposia will be few, and we will do our best to make them both – as much unbiased and accurate.It is worth reminding that Cardiology Highlights is a joint project of the European Society of Cardiology and the Croatian Cardiac Society, and therefore we are very proud that Croatian cardiology got an opportunity to be directly involved in such an important ESC event.
Despite the fact that the Programme is going to be again very intensive and dense, we cannot ignore that Dubrovnik is really one of the nicest places on the earth. Therefore, this time would like to promise to all of our guests that beside a lot of work, a certain time will be saved for enjoying the unique beauty of the old city of Dubrovnik, which is particularly nice in the early October.
Because of all mentioned above, I would like to cordially invite you to come and enjoy with us the 4th Cardiology Highlights – an ESC Update Meeting, Dubrovnik, Croatia.
