The Acute and Stable Ischemic Heart Disease (ASIHD) Learning Pathway has something for everyone. The program, amplified by the global outreach of the ACC/WHF partnership, includes hot topics like high-sensitivity troponin, cardiogenic shock, genetics and MINOCA, as well as SCAD, state-of-the-art diagnosis, and STEMI patient management. Throughout the program, attendees can hear from international experts on significant cardiovascular health issues in the "Global Health Spoken Here" sessions.

All physician and non-physician providers on a cardiovascular care team will benefit from this powerful, creatively structured and informative program. Sessions include many cardiovascular and international experts as well as a variety of non-cardiovascular specialists and advanced practice providers. The ASIHD Learning Pathway also makes ample use of case presentations, audience response systems, debates and other innovative, interactive techniques and will give attendees hands-on learning opportunities. These programs will challenge participants to rethink how they would respond in new scenarios and in daily clinical practice.
