It has become a tradition for the Prahova County, more specifically for the most known resort on the Prahova Valley, to be the host of important medical events in September. Thus, after Conventus Latin ORL, an event organized early in autumn, the 56th edition of the National Cardiology Congress will be held in Sinaia. Deemed to be the largest scientific event of its kind in the Southeastern Europe, the meeting will be attended by many specialists from Romania and abroad.
From September 20 to 23, 2017, Sinaia will host one of the most important medical congresses in Romania. It is the 56th edition of the National Cardiology Congress, which will gather more than 3,000 specialists from Romania and abroad. The hosts of the event will be the Casino Conference Center, Hotel international and Hotel New Montana from Sinaia. The scientific program of the event is considered to be at a high-level, given that it will coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Romanian Society of Cardiology, the organizer of the event. Thus, according to the program, the congress will include lectures on the latest medical discoveries, and case studies, sessions and practical courses of continuing medical education will be presented. As the organizers announced, the National Cardiology Congress is a landmark event where the entire medical community will also discover, in an exhibition area, the most innovative treatment methods presented by the partner companies, thus supporting the scientific research at the highest level.
