Cardiology and Cardiothoracic Society International Virtual Reality Conference 2020

Welcome to the ARU CCTS International VR Conference 2020 page. Despite restrictions on public gatherings, we have made sure that this year we deliver our biggest event yet!

Join us on 3rd and 4th October for our 2-day conference which consist of lectures from international speakers, workshops, and surgery delivered on Zoom. Further details will follow regarding speakers and their topic, so keep your eyes peeled. Updates will be available on our social media (Facebook & Instagram) and Facebook events page (Make sure to say you're 'Going' to help us spread the word!).

As it is our duty to deliver high quality cardiovascular content for you all, we have made sure our content is approved by The Royal College of Surgeons, England. Therefore, upon completion of the conference you will receive 10 CPD points on your certificate.

All profits from our event are being donated to the Children's Heart Federation. This charity helps children born with heart defects by providing support and equipment which greatly improves their quality of life.

As Apple products do not support any VR software that we can use for this conference, we sadly cannot offer the VR networking experience to some delegates. However, delegates will still be able to join us for the lectures on Zoom. We understand how frustrating this is and apologise for this. We can instead offer to pass on any queries to clinicians as we cannot give out their email addresses due to privacy concerns.
