ACVP Members, Current Students & Host Employees, Register Free »

Alliance of Cardiovascular Professionals' Members, current students and professionals who work at Cleveland Clinic or Steward Health can attend these virtual sessions entirely free. If you are an ACVP member, student, or a team member at Cleveland Clinic or Steward Health, follow this link to register: (complimentary registration) »

ACVP members can attend, complimentary, thanks to their on-going support of our organization's mission! Team members at Cleveland Clinic and Steward Health can attend, complimentary, thanks to the generous contributions of their outstanding faculty.

Esteemed Guests, Pay What You Think is Fair

For non-ACVP-members and professionals from elsewhere, we of course want you to attend and enrich our virtual experience, and we don't want price to be a barrier! You can also receive CE credit by registering with the form below, with a minimum contribution of $1 dollar.

Our suggestion: non-ACVP members should pay a suggested $7.50 dollars per CE contact hour credit they plan to request by attending. Continuing education certification is not free for our organization, and your contribution will cover our costs for providing this education and further our mission to support non-physicians in cardiovascular care. We believe this suggested pricing is extremely fair based on the timeliness and quality of the material presented as well as the market for on-demand, virtual CEs in cardiovascular care.

Of course, we'd extremely appreciate your support as a member of the Alliance of Cardiovascular Professionals. Register, below, with a contribution of at least $45 dollars, and you'll receive a complimentary YEAR of ACVP membership in addition to your conference registration. This applies to both current and non-ACVP members. Contribute $45 dollars and attend our event and receive a YEAR of membership. (Normally $85 dollars!) That also means if you're a non-member and pay our suggested fee for complete registration, you'll also receive a complimentary year of ACVP membership!

Of course, we also want to be accessible to those financially affected by COVID-19, unemployment, and to all cardiovascular professionals in every stage of their careers. Please pay what you can, or what you think is fair, using this form:
