Eesti Kardioloogide Seltsi noorkardioloogid
 
 
 
 
 

Estonian Society of Cardiology (ESC) was founded in September 1963 to support and represent all those working in cardiovascular care and -research. There are currently over 230 members, most of them are cardiologists, but ESC includes also other doctors and professionals with an interest in cardiovascular medicine. ESC has also 20 industrial members representing both the pharmaceutical and device companies in the field of cardiology.

The main objectives of ESC are to promote prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases and to provide possibilities for professional educational and continuous training. To achieve these objectives ESC collaborates with the Estonian Ministry of Social Affairs, Estonian Health Insurance Fund and with other national and international medical societies.
Each year ESC gives a scientific award in order to acknowledge Estonian researchers who succeeded to publish results of their research in best international journals. Also, every year one young cardiologist or resident in the field of cardiology is supported by educational grant to cover training costs abroad.

Everyday activities are based on twelve Working Groups, which cover most important topics in cardiology and represent most important sub-specialities. Working Groups actively participate in the preparation of local guidelines and clinical standards and organize national training sessions. They are also responsible for organizing scientific meetings throughout the year. Several educational meetings have been organized in collaboration with other national medical societies. ESC has annually four main meetings – usually in February, May, October and December.
