Bahrain to host Mayo Clinic Cardiovascular Reviews.

Manama, Mar. 24. (BNA) -- Under the patronage of Lt. General Shaikh Mohammed bin Abdulla Al khalifa, the President of the Supreme Council of Health and Chairman of the High Medical Committee, and in association with the Mohammed bin Khalifa Cardiac centre, the Mayo Clinic Cardiovascular Reviews will be held in Bahrain from the 25th to the 28th of March, 2015 at the Gulf Hotel.

This is the second year that this international meeting is being held in Bahrain, with the first year attracting more than 240 international and local physicians. Eleven speakers from the Mayo clinic in Rochester, Minnesota will give 34 talks covering all aspects of cardiovascular medicine including coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease, congenital heart disease, electrical abnormalities of the heart, as well as the latest surgical and interventional procedures related to the heart.

The faculty are world renowned experts in the field of cardiovascular medicine, who have been providing this extensive review for the last 20 years in Rochester, Minnesota. "We are lucky to have this meeting held outside the United States here in Bahrain for the second year running. It gives our physicians the chance to attend this scientific forum without the travel and financial costs of such a long trip, as well as helping to improve the standards of care given to our cardiac patients both in Bahrain and the region at large. This academic meeting would not have been possible without the financial and logistical support provided by the Mohd Bin Khalifa Cardiac Center (MKCC), and its Director, Dr Resan Albadran, and Head of Cardiology, Dr Fuad Abdulqader. MKCC has education as one of its main missions, to both the local community and wider GCC, and holding this meeting is testament to that."

We hope to see that this international meeting becomes a regular fixture in the academic calendar, to bolster Bahrain's position as an academic hub in the field of cardiovascular medicine.

This year, close to 300 participant will attend the meeting, with doctors from all GCC countries, Egypt, Iraq, India, Pakistan, Lebanon, Jordan, South Africa, Nigeria, the U.K., Sweden, Canada and the United States of America. The majority of doctors are from outside Bahrain.
