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.
