Vision For The Future of Heart Failure


“The Heart Failure Symposium is an opportunity to give physicians in the local area and beyond an opportunity to come and have a day of learning and interaction with the UCLA faculty,” says Dr. Richard Shemin, chief of cardiac surgery at UCLA Health, executive vice chair of the department of surgery and co-director of the Heart Institute. “We’re one of the top programs in heart and lung transplantation, as well as assist devices and other mechanical support strategies for the human heart and lungs. Any opportunity you have to share your expertise with others and to advance their knowledge only extends our mission. In addition to providing excellence in patient care, UCLA Health’s mission is to provide education and advance the research mission. Our goal is to have a vision and look forward to future innovation.”
