The Heart Valve Society (HVS) is a truly collaborative international valve society comprised of Cardiologists, Interventional Cardiologists, Cardiac Surgeons, Researchers and Students, who have come together to create this organization of unprecedented depth.
The mission of the HVS is to promote awareness, advance knowledge and innovate to reduce the burden of heart valve disease with a global and multidisciplinary approach. And the vision of the society is to become the foremost society where the heart team advances science, practice and innovation to diminish the global burden of heart valve disease.
There are a number of benefits of being a member of the HVS which will include: reduced registration at the HVS Annual Meeting; opportunities to build a global network through societal events and communications; opportunities to serve on HVS Committees and Working Groups as they develop; and access to the HVS electronic member directory.
