Cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons at all levels can advance their clinical knowledge in heart valve disease —aortic and ascending aorta, mitral, pulmonary, and tricuspid. For two days, the symposium will bring together international leaders to discuss state-of the-art information on devices, long-term results, and surgical techniques with a focus on preventing, diagnosing, and treating heart valve disease. Learn more about the Symposium by visiting the AATS website.
This year, the AATS Foundation will be offering a limited number of travel awards to attend the AATS Cardiovascular Valve Symposium in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Successful applicants will be reimbursed up to $1,000 at the conclusion of the symposium to assist with airfare and hotel accommodations.
To apply for a travel award, candidates must fill out the online application and provide information on their role in caring for underserved individuals, as well as how the symposium will assist them in expanding their patient base. If you cannot accept a US check, a wiring fee will be deducted from your award to transfer the funds to your account.
The AATS Foundation’s Travel Award Committee will review and grade all applicants based on the specific award criteria, with an emphasis on the impact the award may have on treating the underserved population in the applicants’ home country.
