ISHLT HFTXM Academy Co-Chairs



The ISHLT Academy: Core Competencies in Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplant Medicine will provide a concise review of clinical knowledge and essential professional skills to facilitate best practice of surgical and medical aspects involved in the care of patients with advanced heart failure, assessment as candidates and as recipients of mechanical circulatory device and heart transplantation. The course consists of focused presentations with an emphasis on clinical practice. All lectures will be delivered by internationally recognized experts in the field. Related topics will be discussed in Question and Answer sessions following each section. The course will be interactive and assist participants with more detailed individual review. This course is designed to be of benefit for both seasoned clinicians and allied professionals practicing in the field, but is primarily arranged for current trainee physicians, current fellows, and providers in the early stages of their careers.

The course is based on the ISHLT Heart Failure and Transplant Medicine Core Competency Curriculum (ISHLT HFTM CCC), which will be available on the ISHLT web site in May 2014. Extensive referencing in that document should assist selective individual study and review of published evidence for each topic. The ISHLT HFTM CCC document also includes active hyperlinks and related multi-media resources. The core curriculum also serves hospital programs with a tool to review their standards of care, develop protocols and implement current guidelines established in advanced heart failure.
