In this study, we detail our recent experience with 2 successful Internet-based virtual cardiac symposia that focused on the Brugada syndrome and the long QT syndrome. The responses from cardiologists around the world exceeded our expectations, and clearly, this approach answered an unmet need and has major educational potential. Although we initiated the Virtual Cardiac Symposia with the idea of assisting cardiologists caring for patients with relatively infrequent cardiac conditions, we believe that this Internet-based educational approach will have similar applicability and value for cardiologists caring for patients with common cardiac disorders.
