Dear colleagues,

Welcome to the 9th AEPC Teaching Course on Paediatric Arrhythmias, organized by the AEPC Working Group of Dysrhythmia and Electrophysiology and Finnish Cardiac Society.

The course takes place June 14-15, 2024, in Helsinki, Finland.

The course is now fully booked. Please follow the AEPC web pages for the next edition, due in 2026.

Understanding the mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmias in children and in adults with congenital heart disease is essential for the practice of paediatric cardiology. All paediatric cardiologists providing in-hospital care, as well as those working in primary care are frequently confronted with patients suffering from rhythm disturbances. This two-day course aims to augment the participants' knowledge of the mechanisms and management of arrhythmias with a special focus on practical aspects of frequently encountered problems.

Welcome to Helsinki!
