Reshaping education through pandemic circumstances:

A message from our course director.

Dear Colleagues,

EPIC-SEC is transitioning from an in-person event to a fully virtual conference taking place August 27-29, 2020.

During the COVID pandemic we believe it is critical for the cardiovascular community to engage in and disseminate relevant, practical, and cutting-edge clinical and educational content. EPIC-SEC will offer live case demonstrations of complex coronary, structural, and peripheral endovascular procedures from Emory University, Ochsner, and Los Robles Regional Medical Center.  In addition, there will be succinct evidence-based presentations, debates, and discourse related to everyday clinical decisions and dilemmas. Keynote addresses will cover controversies related to major recent clinical trials, cardiovascular leadership in the COVID-era, and how the COVID pandemic will catalyze technical innovations in cardiovascular medicine.

Each of the three days of the EPIC-SEC will take place online on 3 distinct live channels recreating general, coronary, structural, peripheral, clinical cardiology, advanced practice provider, and breakout sessions virtually.   True to the spirit of the consortium, parts of the curriculum will be broadcast from North Carolina, Texas, and Virginia.


Join us for 3 days of CME accredited live cases, debates, and presentations-free of charge.

The Emory Practical Intervention Course (EPIC) is the longest running annual interventional cardiology event in the world.   Based on the teachings of founder Dr. Andreas Gruentzig, EPIC-SEC provides training for thousands of interventional cardiologists from the United States and abroad since 1981. This year, EPIC-SEC brought together 25 academic medical centers to contribute to this clinical, educational and research consortium. We expanded the content to include more preventive cardiology, imaging and innovations in cardiovascular medicine.   In 2019 we had 7 tracks, 170 lectures and debates, 10 live cases, and expanded the consortium to 25 institutions.
