PROGRAM PURPOSE

Objectives: To provide the physician with a working knowledge of clinically relevant and up-to-date topics using a combined lecture and case study approach. This review will provide a practical overview of commonly encountered problems in clinical cardiology, focusing on prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

For each topic, cardiology essentials will be reviewed and illustrative cases explored and discussed. Participants will be invited to share their clinical experiences, concerns, and insights.

Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to define treatment objectives of primary and secondary prevention based on clinical assessment; recognize non-traditional markers for coronary artery disease risk; describe differences in prevention, diagnosis, treatment in women; identify the indication, utility, and findings of non-invasive cardiac testing; describe the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of chronic and unstable coronary artery disease (including myocardial infarction and its complications); consider the appropriate use of medical treatment, catheterization, angioplasty and surgical revascularization in the management of coronary artery disease; interpret basic EKG abnormalities; recognize and treat common cardiac arrhythmias; understand the changing objectives of congestive heart failure treatment; diagnose and treat valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathies, pericardial disease, and non-cardiac vascular disease.

Ideal candidates for this seminar include physicians as well as other health care professionals involved in the daily management of cardiac patients in the office, clinic, or hospital settings.

PORTS OF CALL

Venice, Italy - Venice is possibly the most romantic place you'll ever visit. It seems almost redundant to describe the charms of Venice. The cafes of St. Mark's Square, Palazzo-lined canals plied by gondolas, the elegant Doge's Palace, the Bridge of Sighs and the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore: Venice is one impossibly beautiful sight after next. A great collection of Renaissance era art is housed at Gallerie dell'Accademia. Or, if you prefer modern art, Venice is home to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.

Kotor, Montenegro - Though small, this city is vibrant and shining and its people are happy to share their city with all who come.

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

Messina, Sicily - A beautiful sheltered harbor is your gateway to Taormina, a small town at heart despite its major tourist attraction: the sublime Teatro Greco, offering panoramic views of the coastline and snow-capped Mt. Etna.

Naples, Italy - Capital of Southern Italy, the largest city of Campania, Naples is the third most populated city in Italy (after Rome and Milan), with over a million inhabitants, and is the most important industrial center and trading port for the South. Naples itself can provide a day's fun and entertainment, if its somewhat rundown appearance doesn't dissuade you. Or, join a tour of incredible Pompeii, frozen in time since A.D. 79 when Mt. Vesuvius brought an end to that then-thriving city. Or, take a quick ferry across the bay to the flowery Isle of Capri. Or, (yes, there's more) visit fabulous Sorrento, vacation spot for the well to do.

Portofino, Italy - Portofino, picturesquely situated in a narrow cove at the southeastern tip of a promontory might be the most beautiful place you'll ever see. A tiny port on Italy's northern coast, enchanting Portofino has long been popular with artists, actors and important people thanks to its beautiful setting. Abundantly blessed with agreeable climate and luxuriant vegetation, this "Pearl of the Mediterranean" should have a place on everyone's "bucket list." Fortunately for we in the know, it still remains unspoiled. 

Livorno (Florence/Pisa), Italy - In Florence view the timeless treasures: the lofty Duomo, Giotto's bell tower, Michelangelo's David, the Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vecchio over the Arno. In Pisa, see the famous Tower, still standing, if crookedly, after 650 years.

Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy - Now that you've finished your cruise take advantage of the abundance of things to do in Rome. Ah, the Eternal City: Romance, culture, food, history and fashion. You'll have to plan your time carefully as the sights of Rome are captivating and seemingly endless: the Colosseum and Forum, the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain and, of course the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel.You can't fit it all in one day (or even a week, to be honest). Be sure to spend at least a couple days enjoying the many pleasures Rome has to offer before returning home from your cruise conference.
