We invite everyone to view and take part in the PHA Heartflix- the PHA Video Advocacy Contest. In the current age, video infomercials are effective ways to communicate messages of companies or organizations, promote a certain product or idea, or simply act as a marketing strategy to endorse advocacies and projects of an association. Video infomercials have become an effective way to communicate a particular message to today’s public.

In line with the PHA’s Mission of ensuring quality cardiovascular care and education, the Website Committee presents the PHA Heartflix - a video infomercial contest among the fellows in training of the PHA training institutions. Out of the many video entrees sent by the different institutions, six (6) made it to the Top 6 Finalists. These will be published in PHA's Facebook page and open for viewing and voting for the People’s Choice Award starting April 27, 2017. These videos will likewise be evaluated by a panel of judges. The winners will be announced during the Closing Ceremonies of this year’s Annual Convention in EDSA ShangriLa.


Prepping up for the Real World

Tailored to the needs of new faces in the medical-cardiovascular community, the Real World Practice Forum is a vast mine of invaluable insights and practical survival tools.

The cloistered hospital life is a far cry from the huge real world. Hence, veteran cardiologists and mentors have assumed the responsibility of preparing their protégés for the new chapter in their lives. Whether they want to be a clinician, a professor, a pharma medical director, or take on multi-jobs, they need to be equipped with all the essentials.

Cardiology fellows from various institutions and hospitals gathered at The Patriot Building in Sucat, Parañaque City to partake in the meaningful discussions on Nov. 26, 2016 and December 3, 2016, hosted by PHA director and CEPC co-Chair Dr. Gilbert Vilela.
Subjects ranged from ethics and workplace morale, down to the technical issues entailing the services of a doctor.
