Register now for cardiovascular nurse/technologist symposium


Registration is now open for the 8th annual UC Davis Cardiovascular Nurse/Technologist Symposium, a one-day education event on advances in diagnosing, treating and improving outcomes for patients with heart and vascular disease.

The symposium is Saturday, April 28, from 7 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. at the Hilton Sacramento Arden West. Register online at

The event is a unique opportunity for nurses and technologists in cardiac catheterization, electrophysiology, electrocardiogram and echocardiography labs to learn about innovations in their field. Past participants have come from throughout Central and Northern California and Northwestern Nevada.

The faculty, all UC Davis Health experts, will cover topics such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement, the Watchman procedure, magnetic systems for ablations, endovascular thoracic aortic surgery and new frontiers in heart transplantation. Click here for the complete program.

“There really isn’t another learning opportunity like this in our region,” said Kori Harder, director of the Heart and Vascular Centers at UC Davis Health and one of the program planners. “It gives us the chance to come together as a community, share best practices, and find out about the latest and greatest medical and surgical interventions that can be offered to our patients.”
