A Comprehensive Review of the Latest Advances, Current Trends and New Innovative Therapies for Cardiovascular Disease


The 30th Annual Cardiovascular Conference in Beaver Creek, Colorado has been designed to provide a comprehensive review of the latest advances, current trends and new innovative therapies for cardiovascular disease, delivered by national leaders in the field. Interact with faculty during case-based sessions that address challenges in the diagnosis and management of common cardiovascular conditions such as atrial fibrillation, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure and valve disease. The course will also feature a case-based fellows program, and a focus session on innovations in cardiovascular care.


By attending this conference, attendees should improve their ability to:

  • Discuss new therapeutic agents for hyperlipidemia
  • Discuss the management of perioperative atrial fibrillation
  • Describe how to integrate SGLT2 inhibitors into your practice
  • Discuss the impact of artificial intelligence in cardiology
  • Discuss new advances in cardiac CT and FFR-CT
  • Review how to detect and manage device infection
  • Discuss the optimal DAPT strategy after PCI
  • Describe new catheter-based approaches for tricuspid regurgitation
