  • The Congenital Heart - A Multidisciplinary Symposium on Congenital Heart Disease

    This one-day symposium brings together national experts who have an encyclopedic knowledge of congenital heart disease. The focus of the symposium is to educate the target audience regarding the care of the congenital heart patient by a multidisciplinary team composed of pediatric specialists in: surgery, cardiology, critical care, imaging, nursing, and respiratory therapy.

    The formation of a new center for congenital heart disease at UMMC has created a particular need for a comprehensive education of those caring for a dramatically increased number of pediatric heart patients in Mississippi. Since only a limited number of centers in the United States provide specialized care in congenital heart disease, this symposium provides a forum for expert speakers to present the latest knowledge in congenital heart disease diagnosis and treatment.
