CVT Heart Dissection Program

The New York State Chapter of the ACC is offering a Heart Dissection Program, specifically designed for members of the cardiovascular team (CVT), including physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, registered nurses and sonographers.

The objective of this hands-on (pig) heart dissection event is to familiarize CVT Members with both anatomical structure and physiological disease processes. It also allows them to understand the different interventional modalities to treat CV diseases, in the same way that this hands-on modality is used for cardiology fellows during their training.

Faculty include:

  • Daniel Frenkel, MD, FACC, FHRS
  • Jason T. Jacobson, MD, FACC, FHRS
  • Christopher F. Liu, MD, FACC, FHRS
  • Stavros E Mountantonakis MD, MBA

Join your CVT colleagues for this special, hands-on educational event on Wednesday, January 19th, 2022, in Manhattan.

Upon completion of this session, attendees will be able:

  • To identify the anatomical location of the heart’s conduction system
  • To recognize the orientation of the chambers and structures of the heart and its appearance in various imaging modalities
  • To explain atrial and ventricular structures and common sources of arrhythmias and congenital abnormalities
  • To describe the cardiac valves and leaflets and their relative location in the heart
The event is free, but space is limited and registration is required. Early registration will be offered to CVT Members (non-physicians) only.
