The Mission of the World University for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery is to promote and facilitate access to education of surgeons and allied professionals involved in the care of patients with pediatric and congenital heart disease.
The World University will launch its educational activities with a series of monthly Webinars, the first one on the topic of TGA/IVS on Saturday, September 26, from 9-11:30 AM, Montreal time (1 – 3:30 PM, GMT). Please, make plans to attend this exciting event with your colleagues!
