We have lined a series of talks and symposiums with the approach of going back to the basics of paediatric cardiology.

Our series of speakers comprise of senior paediatric cardiologists, paediatricians as well as our esteemed colleagues from Cardiothoracic Surgery, Paediatric Respiratory, Genetics and Neonatology. Several aspects of paediatric cardiology diagnostic approach and management will also be discussed involving cardiac imaging, electrophysiology, interventional cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery as well as pre and post-operative care.

We have also selected researches and cases to be presented as Moderated Posters, Interesting Cases and “Meet The Experts” sessions. This will provide a platform for up and coming medical officers and specialists as well as for paediatric cardiologists to share their researches. We are organising 2 pre-symposium workshops (Electrocardiogram and Basic Echocardiography) which will be beneficial to general doctors and paediatricians alike.

We hope everyone whom are involved in the care of these selected group of patients will benefit from the symposium.
