A 3-DAY DIGITAL EVENT BROADCAST

1 – 3 DECEMBER 2021
4pm CET | 10am ET


REGISTER FREE

An interactive experience exploring the latest electrophysiology treatment strategies in ablation and arrhythmias.

Overview

Rhythm Interventions Online will return 1-3 December 2021.

Building on the outstanding success of 2020’s inaugural event, Rhythm Interventions Online (RIO) 2021 will deliver the highest quality CME-accredited learning over three days.

With an interactive programme that will reflect the very latest tips, tricks and technologies, the aim of RIO 2021 is, conversely, one of continuity: the continue to provide you, the healthcare professional, with stimulating virtual sessions to educate, challenge, and best support optimal outcomes in patient care.

Central to RIO’s philosophy is for all sessions to again be free-to-access, providing a platform for the widest dissemination of live case procedures, expert opinions and best-in-class presentations and discussion.

With over 3200 attendees last year from 130 countries, RIO 2021 aims to be yet larger still, connecting the global electrophysiology community for a truly unique learning experience.

Register for free here to join the experience.


Why should you attend RIO 2021?
  • Twelve hours of accredited free-to-access CME learning*
  • Opinion and discussion from international thought-leaders
  • Exciting live cases from leading global centres
  • Symposia and breakouts
  • Opportunity to interact with a global audience
  • Free to view and easy to access

*Rhythm Interventions Online has been accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) for a total of 12 CME points, equating to 12 hours of learning (4 hours per day). Physicians may convert EBAC External CME credits to AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM.
