Welcome MessageTime passes swiftly. It is both astonishing and exciting that the Hong Kong College of Cardiology is stepping into her 31st Anniversary of establishment! As the educational program in cardiovascular medicine with the largest scale in Hong Kong, the 31st Annual Scientific Congress of the Hong Kong College of Cardiology will be held on 16-18 June 2023 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre physically.
Our Annual Scientific Congress has established itself as the iconic and flagship educational program for cardiovascular professionals from different disciplines in Hong Kong. The Annual Scientific Congress with a rich scientific program was successfully held and well received last year and we recorded a record-high number of over 2,400 registrants and 1,900 attendees from Hong Kong, mainland China and other parts of the world. The Organizing Committee is working with much effort in putting together a highly educational program via different teaching platforms and learning modes. The well-received program components of theme-based symposia, joint sessions with international cardiac societies, Hong Kong Heart Foundation Lecture, abstract and case presentations, poster presentations, Cardiology Course for Family Physicians and General Practitioners, paediatric cardiology program and allied cardiovascular health professional symposium will be included this year and new initiatives will be explored. Please stay tuned and further details will be released in due course.
Last but not least, I would like to invite your active participation by registering the Congress. We will still strive for professional excellence in the management of our patients and continuous learning is doubtlessly the key to this end!
