There were 4047 attendees in our 25th Congress last year and we expect this figure to reach up to 5000 this year. Our Congress has been accredited by EBAC since 2006.
This year we are going to hold the Congress again on Friday-Saturday-Sunday in order not to interfere with your busy schedule.
In the â€œSymposiaâ€, â€œPro-Con Debatesâ€ and â€œHow-to Sessionsâ€ we will update and discuss our recent knowledge on diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Besides these, we will improve our practice by the â€œVisual Interactive Coursesâ€ which attracted a great interest last year and thus we increased the number of them. For the sake of efficiency the attendance to the courses are limited with 40 participants, on the basis of â€œfirst come-first servedâ€ principle. Only the registered Congress attendees are invited to register online for these courses and the participants will be given separate certificates for the courses.
â€œCardiology in Practiceâ€ sessions, focused on updated basics of cardiology clinical practice, that we initiated in our 24th Congress drew the intensive attention of our colleagues from other specialization fields in the 25th Congress, too. Thus, we developed this separate line of sessions and prepared the program together with the Society of Family Doctors in Izmir to cover the whole clinical practice of cardiology. The greatest innovation of our Congress in this field is initiating to accept abstracts in a new category of â€œFamily Medicineâ€; we are confident that our colleagues from this discipline will make the best use of this opportunity.
The innovation of our previous Congress, the â€œOOO- Case Focused Sessionsâ€ where we aimed to present the update cardiovascular knowledge and clinical practice in interactive discussion format, proved to be more successful than we expected. Thus, we will put them in further service of our participants this year, too.
There will be several celebrated international lecturers from the ESC, ACC and the associations of the ESC in the scientific program besides the Joint Sessions with the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the Syrian Cardiovascular Association. As our members know, we are having our joint sessions with the Bosnia and Herzegovina, German, Hellenic and Polish Cardiac Societies in their Congresses this year.
Our Congress will also give its traditional Best Oral and Poster Presentation Awards to the authors of the scientific abstracts submitted to the evaluation of the Congress reviewers. The accepted abstracts will again be published in the Special Supplement of our official journal "TKD Arsivi / Archives of the TSC" that is fully indexed in PubMed-Index Medicus-MEDLINE, EMBASE and IndexCopernicus.
We would like to invite you to participate in our 26th Congress with further international features that we meticulously organize both in scientific and social programs and wish to meet you in Ä°stanbul, the sole metropolis of two continents for the last 27 centuries and the European Capital of Culture 2010.
