The Emory Percutaneous Intervention Course is the longest running annual interventional cardiology event in the world. Based on the teachings of founder Dr. Andreas Gruentzig, EPIC has provided training for thousands of interventional cardiologists from the United States and abroad since 1981.
The meeting’s mission is to engage interventional cardiologists and cardiac surgeons specializing in coronary and structural heart disease to further enhance the care of their patients, mentor and train future generations of cardiovascular specialists, and lead front-line clinical research in the field.

Adam Greenbaum, MD, joined Emory after serving at Henry Ford Heart and Vascular Institute in Detroit, Michigan for the past 19 years as Co-director of the Center for Structural Heart Disease, Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory and Director of the Interventional Fellowship Program. He has dedicated his career to patient care, clinical research and fellow and resident education. Dr. Greenbaum has received numerous patient care and teaching awards, and is recognized as a clinical expert in the field of structural heart disease. His breakthrough research surrounding structural heart problems and the minimally invasive techniques he developed as a result, gives patients new treatment options. And his novel transcatheter methods and approaches to valvular heart disease bring new hope to patients with no other options. He is board certified in general and interventional cardiology and is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology, the American Heart Association and the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions. Dr. Greenbaum graduated from the New York University School of Medicine in New York, NY. He completed his internal medicine training at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI and his general and interventional cardiology training at Duke University in Durham, NC.
