European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA)

The mission of EHRA is "To improve the quality of life of the European population by reducing the impact of cardiac arrhythmias".

Its ambition is to serve as the leading organisation in the field of arrhythmias and electrophysiology in Europe, and to attract all physicians from Europe and beyond to foster the development of this area of expertise.
