SIF 2021 SYMPOSIUM OVERVIEW

OVERVIEW

SIF 2021 is a  comprehensive, state-of-the-art four-day symposium providing an in-depth review of the most relevant advances in the treatment of heart and vascular disease. Now in its 17th year, SIF 2021 is blessed with a world-class faculty capable of providing an in-depth understanding of pathophysiologic disease mechanisms, advanced diagnostic imaging, a Heart Team approach to problem solving the complex disease management, and the most updated, innovative therapeutic options for cardiovascular disease management. This course will include a series of high-level didactic lectures, case presentations and live case transmissions from leading centers throughout the country.

The COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted cardiovascular CME efforts this past year. Conferences moved to virtual formats to continue advancing ongoing cardiovascular education. While these virtual formats have allowed us to continue learning in an ever-changing world, the educational value of learning live and in person has suffered. Recognizing the enormous value of in-person education, the SIF 2021 scientific organizing committee has committed time and resources to create a safe and educational meeting with limited in-person attendance which will also be concurrently live-streamed for online attendance and participation. Our organizing committee takes the health and safety of our faculty, industry partners and attendees very seriously and will take every measure to ensure that the educational value of SIF 2021 will be enhanced by following all guidelines outlined by the CDC and Arizona Department of Health to provide a safe and structured environment. Please read below for further information.
