Peter Munk Cardiovascular Symposium
February 23 - 24, 2024

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Consequently, it is imperative for healthcare providers to engage, learn, and challenge one another on how to best care for patients who are at risk, or affected by, cardiovascular disease.
The Peter Munk Cardiac Centre has a worldwide reputation as a leader in the field of cardiovascular disease. The Peter Munk Cardiac Centre has a storied history of treating the most complex cases of heart disease. Of the 2,000 cardiovascular surgeries performed each year, 40% are deemed “complex,” underscoring the fact that in their hour of greatest need, patients turn to the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre to deliver the most consequential and meaningful results.
In this year’s in-person symposium, we are as committed as ever to strategically integrate the prevailing expertise of the different divisions providing cardiovascular care at PMCC, so leaders in the field are equipped with the knowledge and confidence to improve patient outcomes around the world.
