About

We, like most of you, miss the opportunity to interact with our friends and colleagues on topics relevant to cardiac physiology. To help to remedy this gap we (Mike Landzberg and Keri Shafer) have designed a weekly interactive conference to be hosted by the Boston Children’s CME department in collaboration with the OPENPediatrics team. We will focus on adult congenital heart disease patients and universal cardiac physiologic principles. Each interactive conference will be 30-45 min in duration and provide:

  • Focus on a single cardiovascular physiologic principle
  • Application of focused paper/guideline
  • Free CME (MD, RN, PA, NP credit available)
