Cardiovascular Grand Rounds

Putting Research Into Practice

Our Cardiovascular Grand Rounds offers physicians and other health care providers the opportunity to review and discuss the latest developments in cardiovascular care. These weekly meetings feature topics from many cardiac specialty areas, including: structural heart disease, heart failure, electrophysiology, cardiovascular imaging, interventional cardiology, cardiovascular disease prevention, cardiothoracic surgery, and vascular/endovascular. Practitioners share research highlights, offer treatment or diagnostic best practices, and collaborate to improve care for those with cardiovascular disease.

When

Mondays from 7 – 8 a.m.
(No meetings held from Memorial Day through Labor Day)

Where

Minneapolis Heart Institute Building
Suite 100, Learning Center

Notice – Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person attendance of Grand Rounds will be limited to 15 people. Please join us using the webinar link below.
