June 26-28, 2015 - Swissotel Chicago, Il
Course Directors: Friedman, Paul A., M.D., Cha, Yong-Mei, M.D., Hayes, David L., M.D. 

The program will update attendees on the indications, follow up, and management of cardiac rhythm technology, emphasizing clinical pearls while simultaneously providing information that will be directly applicable to standardized testing.  Evolving device technology has increased programming complexity, follow-up, and management.  Cardiac implantable device management related to electrophysiology remains a major part of daily practice for cardiologists, electrophysiologists, and non-physician caregivers involved in the management of these devices.

The symposium is designed for physicians, scientists and allied staff including nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and nurses who specialize in cardiology, cardiac rhythm management, or internal medicine.

Course Registration (MD, PhD, DO, PharmD)            $685
