Past participants of this course consistently report that this program has inspired and improved their clinical practice and outcomes. Here are a few comments from recent attendees:
“What a privilege it is to learn from such an extraordinary group of physician specialists. I am eager to incorporate the innovations they shared into our everyday practice.”
“HANDS DOWN, the BEST update I have ever heard on lipid therapy.”
“This course addressed a lot of the questions that have been coming up in my practice.”
“I left with a much better understanding of the role of newer diabetes drugs in the practice of cardiology.”
“This has definitely changed our use of the newer agents and decreasing sulfonylurea use.”
“For long-term management of patients with heart failure, the information on ablation was invaluable.”
“Just to mention a few changes inspired by this course: the prescription of exercise; the evaluation of the oncology patient; the proper use of anticoagulants in prevention of CVA; the proper use of antiplatelet agents in non-STEMI; the approach to the pregnant patient with heart disease; the approach to the adult with congenital heart disease.”
“This course has led to changes in the evaluation of cardiomyopathies, use of troponin, care of cancer patients, and length of DAPT.”
“The updates on the cardiac toxicity of some oncology therapies have changed my approach to counseling patients about treatment options.”
“This was really important in resetting my goals for lipid lowering.”
“Excellent presentations — all full of clinical pearls that have improved my practice.”
“This is the best course in terms of current, state-of-the-art information and careful, thoughtful evaluation about how to apply it.”
“I now have a more critical eye about ordering stress tests and coronary screening tests for patients preoperatively.”
“Having attended this program, I am more confident treating pregnant patients with concomitant cardiac disease.”
“This course has influenced my practice in too many ways to mention! Among them: Avoiding enteric coated aspirin, making better use of the guidelines for evaluation/stress tests, and making better decisions regarding DAPT as well as NOACs.”
"The clinically useful knowledge presented in this course, especially concerning syncope, cardiac markers, PE and AF was truly exceptional."
"This program has updated my management of pulmonary HTN, PE and Coronary Artery Disease."
"Cutting-edge information was presented in every lecture."
“I follow the expert info/guidelines presented at this course, especially for DAT as well as anticoagulation duration for recurrent PE/DVT.”
“This is the best conference I have been to as far as overall quality of the speakers.”
“I have made changes to my practice in the current control of hypertension, lipidemias, and peripheral vascular disease.”
“The aspirin data supplied in this course really changed my practice on DAPT for post-PCI patients.”
“I count on and look forward to this conference every year to benchmark my practice and to stay current and skilled.”
"The speakers were simply outstanding along with the appropriate level at which they taught; seeing their own mutual respect for each other and their profession was most inspiring."
"Update in Clinical Cardiology was an excellent course given by physicians dedicated to their specialty and truly experts in their field."
"The degree of evidence-based practice and recent research discussed and incorporated into recommendations was exceptional."
"It is always a great pleasure to see physicians who actually see patients and have clinical experience and recognize evidence rather than merely following guidelines."
"I rely on this course for my yearly update for the 'best practice' of current/contemporary clinical cardiology."
"The research on exercise and the heart and RNA as well as the cardio-oncology information was cutting edge."
"The course was very comprehensive, with an outstanding faculty, and ample opportunity to ask questions and speak one-on-one with presenters."
"As an internist working as a hospitalist in a 25-bed critical access hospital, I will utilize the clinically practical information provided in the course: the cardiac markers, new management of HF, management of ACS, and excellent information on syncope."
"After this course, I am confident that I will appropriately use diagnostic and therapeutic tools to treat patients with cardiovascular disease."
"I am now more up to date with diagnostic and treatment decisions."
"I have changed my management of the lipid panel and made adjustments to statin therapy."
"In the days after returning to practice after this course, I was already dosing medications differently."
"This course provided me with excellent resources to provide for statistical data for treatment (pharmacological and intervention/procedures), and up-to-date imaging recommendations."
"I now make better use of new developments in percutaneous valves and NOACs."
"My practice has implemented the new guidelines referable to management of CAD/dyslipidemia."
"I have instituted more aggressive anticoagulation of elderly AFib patients, and pay closer attention to potential cardiac diagnoses in younger patients presenting with what seems like initially non-cardiac symptoms."
"I have become more attuned to the cardiac effects of oncology drugs, am fine tuning beta blocker use, and refining my work-up of syncope."
"This program had uniformally good lecture presentation and excellent content."
"Many presenters shared 'tips' that were amazingly helpful."
"The topics were presented in an interesting, succinct, effective and up-to-date manner. Excellent speakers and presentations."
