National Congress of Cardiology, the twenty third of which is being organized
this year, is the most prominent scientific congress of our country with its
high quality scientific content and increasing number of participants.
This year most important part of the program will be the “ ESC – TKD Joint
Session” which will take place with highest level participation of the Executive
Committee of ESC. Traditional “Turkey – Poland Joint Session” will also be part
of the congress program this year.
Every year included in the congress program are symposia, mini courses, “how to”
sessions and “pro-con” debates which present the most updated information about
cardiovascular diseases to our colleagues.
The “visual interactive education meetings” and joint symposia with other
branches were introduced last year and attracted much applause. These programs
will be developed further this year.
Our congress creates the opportunity to learn and discuss the recent scientific
research done in our country with oral and poster presentations with a more
developed new application this year: all posters will be prepared as “e-poster”
in order to allow all the interested participants to review any poster at any
time during the congress.
This congress will be run in 11 meeting halls and the program, like last year,
will be held intensively in 3 full days. This productive approach, which
occupies less of our participants’ busy work schedules had much support in last
I hope that you participate our diligently organized congress to strengthen our
sharing of information.

The "XXIII. National Congress of the Turkish Society of
Cardiology" is accredited by the European Board for
Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) for 12 hours of
External CME credits.
Each participant should claim only those hours of credit that
have actually been spent in the educational activity. EBAC works
in cooperation with the European Accreditation Council for
Continuing Medical Education (EACCME), which is an institution
of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS).
