History


Founded on August 14, 1943, in the city of São Paulo, by Dante Pazzanese, MD, the Brazilian Society of Cardiology (BSC) currently has 13,000 members and is the largest Latin American cardiology society.

Over this period, several specialized departments and study groups were created, in addition to BSC Brazilian Cardiology Congresses, which have been happening for 72 years.

The Publications Department is responsible for publishing the Arquivos Brasileiros de Cardiologia and the BSC Journal. The first one, continuously published for 50 years, has a technical nature and features major scientific stories from the Brazilian and international Cardiology scenes, whereas the second one has a less academic approach, addressing subjects of general interest of the society at large.


BSC/Funcor (Fund for Improving the Cardiology Research) is responsible for fostering professional improvement and scientific/technological research in the field of Cardiology, as well as disseminating the epidemiological aspects of cardiovascular diseases, raising the public’s attention about inherent risks and providing information about the possibilities of prevention and treatment.

The Brazilian Society of Cardiology currently has 26 regional chapters and 13 departments, which gives it the status of a nationwide scientific entity. BSC has 2 headquarters, one of which is in Rio de Janeiro (picture on the side), which houses the administrative/financial teams, the Information Center and the Events Center. It was home to the Advisory Team for the XIII World Congress of Cardiology (1998). The other one is located in São Paulo, which houses the Publications Department and BSC/FUNCOR.


The BSC infrastructure allows the planning and performance of several projects targeted at members and the Brazilian Cardiology with the exchange of technical and scientific information in a quick, easy and updated manner.
