Mayo Clinic Division of Cardiovascular Diseases implemented an online conference registration system in January 2012. If this is your first time using the online system, you will need to create a profile. The attendee’s email address is required upon registration. A letter of confirmation and receipt will be forwarded to this email address upon receipt of submitted registration and payment. Present this letter when checking in at the meeting registration desk. 

The registration fee includes tuition, electronic course syllabus, continental breakfasts, break refreshments, and reception. Although it is not Division of Cardiovascular Diseases policy to limit the number of registrants for a course, conference room facilities may necessitate closing of enrollment; therefore, early registration is advised. Enrollment for this program is limited.


Discounted lift tickets and Ski/Snowboard Rentals are available. This group rate is good during the entire meeting to include Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone and Breckenridge. However, the tickets must be purchased in advance.
