We are proceeding with planning the upcoming Western Society of Pediatric Cardiology/ Pacific Coast Fetal Cardiology Meeting. Given the continuing and rapidly-evolving situation with COVID-19 and uncertainty about the lifting of travel restrictions or stay-at-home orders in various states and counties, we are considering various options for the course that has been scheduled for September 11-13, 2020, in San Francisco, California.

University of California San Francisco Benioff Children’s Hospital is pleased to be hosting the
31st Annual Meeting of the Western Society of Pediatric Cardiology
We are pleased to announce that the 2020 WSOPC meeting will be held September 11-13, 2020 at the Hilton Financial District in San Francisco. Please save the date.
This change was implemented for a few reasons:
- It avoids the crush of the spring meetings of the Pediatric Academic Society, SCAI, HRS, ASE, Memorial Day, Mother’s/Father’s Day, whereas September is basically free of meetings.
- The fall will be a better time for networking between the Western Society Members and fellows regarding job opportunities.
- The meeting was previously held in the fall in the past.
- Since there is no 2021 meeting due to the World Congress, it was a good time to trial a different meeting time. A fall meeting would at worst split the difference between the 2019 and 2022 meetings.
As a bonus, the meeting will be held in conjunction with the Pacific Coast Fetal Cardiology meeting that is co-hosted by UCSF and CHOC, creating an opportunity for an expanded program and perhaps expanded attendance.
More details to come.
