Home / HFSA News / 2nd Annual Future Leaders in Heart Failure Symposium – Application Process Now Open!


The Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) leadership is committed to dedicating time and resources to encourage and support select cardiology fellows, nurses (particularly advance practice nurses or nurse scientists), and pharmacists early in their respective careers and committed to a career in heart failure to becoming the future leaders in this growing and evolving field.

As such, the HFSA is planning the 2nd Annual Future Leaders in Heart Failure Symposium. To support HFSA’s dedication to interdisciplinary collaboration, select nurses and pharmacists who are early in their respective career development and possess great potential as future leaders, will be invited to apply.

This symposium will be held on May 4-6, 2018 at the Le Méridien Charlotte in Charlotte, NC. This intensive two-day conference is specifically designed to both educate and facilitate the various pathways for early career professionals to consider as they embark on a career in heart failure.

The objectives of the conference are to:

  • Expose early career professionals to established thought leaders in heart failure
  • Create role models for the early career professionals and establish mentoring relationships
  • Provide state of the art updates in heart failure with ample opportunity for discussion
  • To raise awareness of current and future challenges in the implementation of best practices in the care of the heart failure patient
  • Develop successful career paths for those interested in clinical investigation, basic and translational science, population biology and/or clinical practice

We encourage you to review the application guidelines and to apply or nominate those who are committed to pursuing heart failure as a career choice to apply for participation in this exciting symposium. We hope you will encourage your trainees to apply.

Space is limited. All applicant materials will be reviewed, and selections made, by the conference planning committee. Support for travel and hotel accommodations will be provided for each trainee selected to attend.

The deadline to apply is January 26, 2018. 
All applicant materials should be emailed to Patrick McGary (pmcgary@hfsa.org).
