Each center presented a patient case for discussion to share expertise and provide mutual learning. UC Davis pediatric cardiologists, nurse practitioners and echocardiograph technicians were in attendance along with Sejong Cardiac Hospital’s team.

“Sejong is one of the leading hospitals taking care of congenital heart disease (CHD) patients in Asia. This collaboration may expand to research projects and sponsorship for other types of conferences,” said Frank Ing, chief of pediatric cardiology at UC Davis Children’s Hospital.

UC Davis Health is actively engaged in partnering with hospitals, peer universities, research institutions and government agencies across the globe in order to facilitate a wide variety of intellectual interactions and exchanges.
