The Emory Practical 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.
