With a strong need to form an academic cardiology association to maintain and upkeep professional standards and maintain good practices, Dr Mario Evora (Head of the Cardiology Department, Hospital Centre S. Januario) established the Macau Cardiology Association on 22 August 2001. Its members are cardiologists from Kiang Wu Hospital, Hospital Centre S. Januario, and private practice.
In 2002, The Macau Cardiology Association became a member of the World Heart Federation. The Association has actively participated in international cardiologist meetings and has organized local Continuing Medical Education (CME) seminars for its members as well as important cardiovascular education to the public.
In the fight against cardiovascular disease, the Association would like to join hands with all healthcare professionals throughout Macau. We welcome healthcare professionals who have experience in anti-smoking campaigns, lifestyle promotion, and other initiatives that increase cardiovascular health. By broadening the range of specialists in Macau Cardiology Association, we could offer a more rounded professional service in increasing cardiovascular wellness.
