Cardiology for the Practitioner
Saturday, April 29, 2017 | Four Seasons Hotel Toronto

On behalf of the Division of Cardiology at St. Michael's Hospital, I am pleased to extend a personal invitation to you to attend a special event, the 28th in the series entitled "Cardiology for the Practitioner" which will take place on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto.

In the tradition of previous years, we intend to provide a first class, interactive, educational experience for key community practitioners of cardiovascular medicine. The planning committee has worked hard to select subjects which are of relevance to the contemporary practitioner. As always, we will provide you with details and analysis of new clinical trials and the latest data from international meetings to ensure that you have the most up-to-date information. Please remember that this program is structured to facilitate discussion and promote interaction between the speakers and the audience and there will be ample opportunities for informal discussion during the nutritional breaks.

We are pleased to announce that the Canadian Heart Research Centre will be partnering with us for a fifteenth year in coordinating this event. The Canadian Heart Research Centre is a federally incorporated not-for-profit academic research organization dedicated to the conduct of clinical trials and education in the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease in Canada.

On behalf of the Division of Cardiology at St. Michael's Hospital, I sincerely hope that you can join us for what we believe will be an outstanding educational event and an otherwise enjoyable opportunity to meet with friends and colleagues. I would encourage you to register early, bring your questions and problem cases, and join us in what promises to be a vigorous and stimulating day.


Howard Leong-Poi, MD
Head, Division of Cardiology
