Dear Esteemed Colleagues,


Weekend Course on Cardiology, or known as WECOC, is a routine scientific event of the continuing medical education (CME) from Department of Cardiology and Vascular Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Indonesia. It was first held in 1989 and continued annually afterwards. WECOC is the oldest cardiology scientific event in Indonesia.

The purpose of WECOC is to inform the latest science and technology update for cardiologist and general practitioners in dealing with daily cardiology problems. Over the past 5 years, the number of WECOC participants reached 700-800 participants each year, attended by cardiologists, other specialists, general practitioners, medical students and paramedics. Beside scientific programs such as symposiums and workshops from the Department of Cardiology and Vascular Medicine, WECOC also held exhibitions for pharmaceutical and medical equipment’s company. However, in this difficult time where the Covid-19 pandemic struck globally, we realize that in order for WECOC to proceed, we need to adapt for the sake of safety for those who contributes in this event. To ensure the regulation for proposing social distancing and limit social gathering throughout the nation, we thought that this year WECOC should go in digital platform as the first virtual cardiology conference in Indonesia. As we transform the 32nd WECOC to virtual meeting, we look forward to offer you the same vibrant scientific session with opportunities to reflect and connect over the state-of-the-art innovation of cardiovascular medicine in which has been set as WECOC standard all these years. The virtual conference will include our regular symposiums and workshops dedicated to serve your yearning for the updates of cardiovascular medicine, completed with forums to discuss your interesting cases and presents your groundbreaking abstracts.

Mark your calendars and join us at 11-20 September 2020. We hope that you will join us for this reimagined event, and celebrate our collective resilience and dedication to forging connections without boundaries.

 Welcome to the digital conference of the 32nd WECOC 2020.
