Philippine Heart Association
Cardiology as a specialty was introduced to the Philippines with the formal organization of the Philippine Heart Association (PHA) on March 26, 1952. Soon after, the Association was recognized nationally by the Philippine Medical Association and internationally by the International Society of Cardiology. Thereupon, the Association has made it its responsibility to expand the medical community's knowledge of the field and to subsequently disseminate this knowledge and other concerns about heart diseases to the general public. The PHA continues to step up its educational campaign through various media and activities in the generation of public awareness on cardiovascular diseases. It is also committed to the continuing education of its members and the rest of the medical community through various lectures, symposia and conventions held here and abroad. Throughout its more than 7 decades of existence, the Association, through its members and accredited training institutions, has also conducted various original researches, enhancing our clinical knowledge of cardiovascular medicine.
