Our department’s 2017 Shock Symposium, organized in collaboration with the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, will be held Friday, May 5, 2017. Our department faculty, Dr. Michael Donnino and Dr. Mike Cocci, are co-chairing the event.
This symposium will provide up-to-date and cutting edge information about current best practices in diagnosis and treatment of shock/critical illness, in the appropriate amount of time which will assist the learners in development of new strategies they can apply in practice. Also, through shared dialogue, individual participants will have the opportunity to assess how new forms of treatment can best serve the care of their patients.
