SOLD OUT! BHVS Meeting 29th & 30th April 2024 @ The Wellcome Collection in London

This two-day programme aims to cover the BHVS Core Curriculum knowledge requirement for all healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with heart valve disease on the first day. The BHVS Core Curriculum education days are always very popular with referring physicians as well as the entire heart valve team. The second day is a deep dive into the assessment and management of mitral and tricuspid regurgitation, providing details on timing of intervention, selection of cases for different procedures as well as procedure planning and guidance. 


Philips and GE hands-on training workshops on 3D echo assessment of valve morphology and valve regurgitation using Multiview / MPR / Flexislice. The worhsops will take place all day both days along with the main programme of lectures.

150 free-places for both days to BHVS members
