Ventricular Tachycardia Summit 2014

This educational activity is designed to educate electrophysiologists and electrophysiology fellows on the current state-of-the-art in ventricular tachycardia management, specifically device therapy and catheter ablation techniques (endocardial and epicardial).  The management of ventricular tachycardia, especially as it relates to catheter ablation, is a rapidly changing field.  This will be a two-day workshop with 7 speakers and 100 attendees, and will consist of 7-8 45 minute lectures from nationally recognized leaders in the fields of endocardial catheter ablation, epicardial catheter ablation, and device therapies for ventricular tachycardia.  It will also have a cardiac anatomy section with hands-on pig heart session.
