IBHRE Lounge at Heart Rhythm 2017 Annual Scientific Sessions

Throughout the Heart Rhythm Society’s 2017 Annual Scientific Sessions in Chicago, IL, IBHRE will offer a variety of activities for those interested in learning more about IBHRE Certification as well as activities to recognize certified professionals. Whether you are already certified, preparing to take the exam or interested in serving on an IBHRE Test Writing Committee, IBHRE has something for everyone!

 The IBHRE Lounge is open daily to non-certified individuals as well as to all who are IBHRE certified. This is an excellent opportunity for prospective examinees to meet with IBHRE staff as well as to meet one-on-one with IBHRE Test Writing Committee members and IBHRE Ambassadors—stop by and ask specific questions about the exam, learn about the IBHRE scholarship program, discuss how IBHRE certification is being recognized across the profession, and why you should become certified. IBHRE certified individuals are invited to visit the lounge to meet with colleagues, pick up their IBHRE certification lapel pins, and discuss volunteer opportunities.

Refreshments will be available during specific times. If you miss visiting the lounge, stop by IBHRE’s exhibit which will be in the exhibit hall during Heart Rhythm Society’s Scientific Sessions.
