January 30th, 2017 – VSCR Science Summit Cardiology – a new conference format enhances medical postgraduate education

The VSCR Science Summit Cardiology in January 2017 was the start of a new concept of postgraduate education in Vienna. Above more than 100 national and international experts discussed new clinical developments in cardiology.


“New medical evidence in cardiovascular medicine is developing with increasing speed. It is impossible to prove all these innovations personally and critically”, tells the conference president of the VSCR Science Summit Cardiology, Assoc. Prof Georg Delle Karth. The aim of the conference was to present the latest scientific updates by help of top experts in a way which is relevant for clinical practice. “Case presentations complemented the presentations and catalyzed an increase of learning outcomes for the conference delegates. In order to test the relevance and the quality of the conference each participant was encouraged to answer identical questions out of the field of cardiology before and after the conference. This element of quality assurance distinguishes the VSCR Science Summit from other formats of postgraduate education and will become indispensable in the future”, concluded Prof. Heinrich Klech, the managing director of VSCR.
