2017 COAST Conference

A Message from the Conference Chairperson and Planning Committee

Dear Colleagues:

With pleasure, we invite you to attend the 17th National Cardiovascular Medicine & Surgery (COAST) Conference which will be held at the lovely Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.  The hotel is located at the beginning of the Las Vegas strip on the south end and is just 15 minutes north of the McCarran International Airport.

The Planning Committee has assembled a distinguished panel of Kaiser Permanente and external experts in the field of Cardiovascular Medicine & Surgery to serve as faculty. This year's conference will feature important updates on clinical and surgical topics relevant to daily practice and has been designed to meet your educational needs.

Excitingly new for this year, COAST is offering up to 11.25 MOC points applicable towards the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program.  For more details, please navagate to the tab for the information page.

We’ve secured a block of hotel guest rooms including pre and post the official meeting dates and encourage you to come for the education but also to relax, rejuvenate and make contact with friends and colleagues. The Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas offers direct access to the adjacent Mandalay Bay Resort and both offer a variety of fun activities and attractions to take advantage of when you are not in session.

To book your hotel room, you’ll be required to register first for the conference and then you’ll receive an email registration confirmation with the hotel reservation link and other information to book your hotel room.  Please note that the greatly discounted rooms are on a first-come, first-serve basis so we highly recommend that you register early.

We look forward to seeing you!

Gary Roach, MD - Conference Co-Chairman
