For the first time in history patients born with congenital heart disease are surviving and even thriving in adulthood, many with a normal life expectancy. As a relatively new patient population, many individuals are lost in the system as they transition from pediatrics to an adult physician. Recognizing this challenge, Houston Methodist DeBakey Institute of Cardiovascular Education & Training will be holding it’s fifth annual Adult Congenital Heart (ACH) Symposium. This popular annual event is a unique opportunity for patients, family, caregivers and their physicians to learn more about care and treatment options from leading ACH experts.

The event is split into two sections:

Health Professionals Course: Because treating ACH patients is a relatively new phenomenon, physicians from all fields should develop an understanding of this challenging condition. This educational program focuses on the basics of adult congenital heart disease using didactic lectures and panel discussions from leading experts. There will also be a hands-on lab component. Physician and Nursing continuing education credits are available.
