We wish to invite and welcome cardiologists with an interest in rhythm disorders as well as healthcare personnel involved in the management of cardiac arrhythmias to participate in this event.

The program will be varied and combines state-of-the art lectures, pro-contra debates, case-based presentations and interactive workshops in small groups. News from the industry will be integrated in the main program. We again will invite renowned experts to give an international view.

In the setting of our meeting, the SwissRhythm Research Prize will be awarded to a young researcher with the best recent research work in the field of arrhythmias, published or in press, that has been performed in Switzerland.

For those involved in device follow-up, a CME Refresher Course on pacemaker, ICD and CRT troubleshooting will be held on 20 November 2024 at the Hotel Radisson Blu Luzern.

SwissRhythm is a great opportunity to develop professional skills and to meet up with colleagues and friends.

We look forward to welcoming you in Luzern!
