Participation is free; however, interested individuals must submit a brief application for selection. 

Applications for 2020 are now closed. Please mark your calendars for October 2021 to apply to participate.


Overview

To demonstrate its commitment to the future, the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology Board of Directors welcomes applications to participate in the 2020 Future Leaders in Nuclear Cardiology Symposium. The ASNC leadership is dedicated to inspiring and supporting cardiology fellows considering a career in cardiac imaging and particularly those with a focus on nuclear cardiology. 
 
This exciting program will bring together cardiology fellows with a strong interest in multi-modality cardiovascular imaging to trailblazers and thought leaders in the field.  Among the program luminaries who will share inspiration from own journeys are Barry Zaret, MD (Yale University), Marcelo Di Carli, MD (Harvard Medical School), Prem Soman, MD, PhD (University of Pittsburgh), and Randall Thompson, MD (Saint Luke’s Health System). Together with other prominent leaders, they will present perspectives and advice from their career experiences. Question and Answer Roundtables and small group Breakout Sessions have been designed to foster personal interaction between participants and faculty.
