BECOME A MEMBER OF THE KENYA CARDIAC SOCIETY
Life-long learning and improved professional standards.
Why do you need to become a member of KCS?
The field of medicine is always in a state of change. Healthcare professionals need to keep up with the newest developmental & scientific breakthroughs though our society.
The Free/ sponsored seminars, journals, CME courses and other education opportunities provided to our members are immeasurable. Additionally, we offer all of the certification courses you will need throughout your entire career in the cardiovascular realm.
Our professional organization also provides access to mentors, giving you an opportunity to participate in mentoring others as well. Having a mentor in any field will help your career grow and thrive.
2. Continuous professional development
With the education, we offer continuing profession development (CPD) through various CME’s, publications, seminars and annual scientific conferences.
3. Strength in numbers
As one individual, you may feel you have relatively little power to effect change. But membership in a large organization of like-minded professionals can help you not only advocate for the issues that matter to you, but often see major results.
4. An avenue for change
Joining our society, we work for your best interests. This will not only allow you to support the causes that matter to you, but it provides an outlet where your voice as a professional is heard.
5. A physical network
Our society membership will provide you with fulfilling relationships, professional networking and leadership opportunities, career advancement leads, and easy access to recommendations, resources & advice on a wealth of business or patient care topics. It could win you some new patient referrals from fellow members and help you make a difference in the future of your industry.
