Pittsburgh Heart Summit 2024

August 9, 2024 to August 10, 2024

The Annual Pittsburgh Heart Summit provides tools to physicians and physician extenders, including those in surgery, cardiology, which enable collaboration in the care of patients with cardiovascular diseases. The objectives remain to advance the team concept of patient care. Physicians infrequently have the opportunity to interactively discuss current guideline-based care with surgeons and cardiologists. The summit encourages improved team dynamics and provides an opportunity to compare cooperative expertise while educating physicians and health care providers about ways to work together for improved patient safety and clinical efficiency.

The Summit will integrate the cultures and expertise of cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and affiliated specialties primarily from the Greater Pittsburgh Medical Community. Western Pennsylvania regional physicians, physician extenders and providers will engage the speakers and faculty through a diverse lecture series, resident research presentations, and during the live, interactive faculty roundtable discussions.
