Education Oversight Committee

The ISHLT Board of Directors' work regarding its Education mission is delegated in a large part to the Education Oversight Committee (EOC). The EOC is responsible for identifying and connecting the committees or task forces needed to execute projects and programs within the ISHLT education portfolio. This includes, but is not limited to, the Annual Meeting, the Academies and webinars. The committee will help ensure the education ISHLT is developing is following the mission and vision of the society. The EOC is responsible for the development of the overall education strategy for ISHLT that will be approved by the Board of Directors. Other responsibilities include identifying additional delivery modalities to help address member needs. As well as assessing and monitoring the ongoing effectiveness of the society’s current and future education offerings.
