Conference Overview

New Virtual Format for VT2020

In order to ensure the safety and health of attendees and faculty, the 15th Annual International Symposium on Ventricular Arrhythmias has transitioned to an interactive and highly engaging global virtual symposium which will be broadcast live online.

VT2020will deliver the same high-quality education, training, and clinical science attendees have come to expect. VT2020 will feature live case-based transmissions from leading institutions, expert presentations with complementary panel discussions, and dedicated Q&A sessions, virtual training, and ample opportunities to learn and engage with the faculty.


Live Case Learning

Core to VT2020 is the Live Case learning experience, which feature the demonstration of new procedures and current practices in real-time that originate from leading electrophysiology labs. Live case demonstrations are complemented with interactive discussions between the operators and expert panelists, who also address questions submitted by attendees.

Rapid-Fire Expert Presentations

World-renowned faculty share their insights and expertise of new information on the basic pathophysiology of ventricular arrhythmias, and current management strategies used for the care of ventricular arrhythmias in various disease states, including non-pharmacological therapies, such as implantable device and catheter ablation techniques, as well as analysis of late-breaking clinical trial data.


Debates present, discuss, and assess opposing viewpoints from leading experts who tackle current topics and controversial issues impacting the field of ventricular arrhythmia management.

Interactive Panel Discussions

Panel discussions, complemented with Q&A sessions, feature global leaders in the field who draw upon their clinical practice and research experience during the interactive and conversational-based forums.

Innovations in VT Case Theaters

Innovative case reports that illustrate optimal clinical decision-making strategies and procedural approaches through case vignettes, which focus on the monitoring, diagnosis, and/or treatment of ventricular arrhythmias. Case Theaters are complemented with panel discussions and Q&A sessions.

Attendee Engagement

Attendees are empowered to actively engage with the world-renowned faculty throughout the duration of the virtual symposium by submitting questions and providing their perspectives.

Mark E. Josephson Innovations in VT Abstract Competition

As a tribute to the late pioneer, Dr. Mark E. Josephson, the Annual Mark E. Josephson Innovations in VT Abstract Competition Award, recognizes novel work conducted by fellows in the diagnosis or treatment of ventricular arrhythmias. Current EP fellows are invited to submit abstracts which are judged by a panel comprised of the meeting organizers. Authors of the three best abstracts are invited to present their work during the VT2020 abstract competition session, with the winning abstract winner announced by the expert panel of judges at the session’s conclusion.

CME/CE Certificates

Physician attendees are eligible to obtain up to 18.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, and Nurses, up to 18.25 Contact Hours through their VT2020 attendance.

On-Demand Video Library

Attendees are permitted unlimited access to the VT2020 on-demand library of content at the conclusion of the live virtual symposium.

Hosting Organizations

The International Symposium on Ventricular Arrhythmias: Pathophysiology & Therapy is co-hosted by the Division of Cardiology, The Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, NY, and the Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiology, University of Pennsylvania Health System, Philadelphia, PA
