With hands-on learning opportunities, wellness activities, and didactic sessions suitable for everyone on the Cath Lab team, the Complex Cases Summit for Fellows-in-Training, and an introduction to the field for medical students, we're looking forward to seeing everyone in the interventional cardiology community in Long Beach.

Connecting Colleagues

Out with the old exhibit hall and in with SCAI Central, your hub at SCAI Scientific Sessions for registration, exhibits, poster theatres, hands-on learning labs, well-being advice, networking, and generous time for coffee breaks!

At the heart of the meeting, this community space is a place where you can arrange to meet a friend, discuss a challenging case, engage in debate, explore new ideas, join SCAI, sign up for a committee or council, visit the ribbon wall, and take part in this year's SCAI challenge.

Helping You Thrive

Having been trained to put your patients first, prioritizing your well-being can be a logistical, sometimes even an emotive, challenge. So, the Scientific Sessions program includes activities to help you with aspects of day-to-day life you may have been struggling to find time for. 

Do you need ergonomic, leadership, or financial tips? Would you like to start your morning with running or yoga?  It's all possible in Long Beach, California, at SCAI 2024 Scientific Sessions.
