Warm welcome to our website! This Society originally began as California Society of Pediatric Cardiology in the mid 1960s, but became defunct for several years until a new generation of cardiologists headed by Arno Hohn, MD (Los Angeles) resuscitated the society in 1989, and turned it into a vibrant organization.
In September 2001, under the leadership of then president, Norman Silverman, MD (Palo Alto), the name of the society was changed to Western Society of Pediatric Cardiology to reflect ever-expanding membership not only from California but also from most of the western states. Our potential membership pool now consists of more than 450 cardiologists and surgeons involved in the care of children, adolescents and young adults with congenital heart disease in 12 western states. Actual membership consists of those who have voluntarily registered and paid annual dues. There are 118 paid members.
We meet once a year, now changed to May, for a scientific session in an attractive location sponsored by a member group of the Society, featuring strong guest speakers. We meet in an informal small group setting that would stimulate active audience participation.
