According to ESC Cardiologists of Tomorrow principles, young professionals under 36 years of age and/or physicians in training in cardiology can join “Kardio 35“ working group of The Czech Society of Cardiology.
The aim of "Kardio 35" is to improve possibilities of clinical and scientific professional growth of its members during training in cardiology in the following areas:
Our first educational activity was represented by organization of a two-hour training session focused on the ECG diagnosis of cardiac arrhythmias and electrophysiological testing principles at the 10th Czech and Slovak Symposium on Arrhythmias and Cardiac Pacing in Zlin, Czech Republic in January 2012. In addition to invited lectures provided by specialists from the field, the interactive case reports were presented by Czech and Slovak young cardiologists. This educational event with fully occupied auditorium received very positive reviews.
Another educational act of “Kardio 35” was providing the attendance at a two-day conference Clinical Interventional Rhythmology Update 2012 held in March 2012 in Vienna, Austria. 8 young cardiologists took part in this meeting under the auspices of professor Josef Kautzner and kind support of the Cardion company.
Working group “Kardio 35” provided free registration for four young cardiologists in training for Alpe Adria Conference held in June 2012 in Bratislava, Slovakia.
The Board of “Kardio 35” as a part of the ESC Cardiologists of Tomorrow initiative has also provided free registration for 9 young cardiologists to attend ESC Congress 2012 in Munich, Germany.
