Inaugural Sports Cardiology & Exercise Symposium, Feb 28

The Stanford Sports Cardiology symposium intends to provide a platform to health practitioners, including cardiologists, sports medicine physicians, and advanced practice providers (NPs, CNS and PAs) who provide cardiovascular care to athletes and highly active people.

We will discuss contemporary topics in Sports Cardiology and clinical exercise physiology. Stanford University School of Medicine – in partnership with the California Chapter of the American College of Cardiology – will deliver a 3-hour symposium on guideline-driven cardiovascular care for the athlete and highly active individuals.

February 28, 2020

Assembly Hall, Stanford Hospital
500 Pasteur Drive, Stanford, CA

Keynote Speaker: Professor Antonio Pelliccia, Chief of Cardiology of the Institute of
Sports Medicine and Science of the Italian National Olympic Committee.

After participating in this activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify appropriate populations for pre-participation screening.
  2. Perform appropriate cardiac risk assessment, including the use of diagnostic studies in
    athletes and highly active individuals.
  3. Debate the current and continuing controversies in sports cardiology, including preparticipation
    screening, management of arrhythmia differentiating athletes’ heart from
    cardiomyopathy and returning to sport after cardiovascular surgery/intervention.

The Stanford University School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
