A Joint Symposium at another organization's meeting is defined as a single session of up to 180 minutes and up to 6 presenters/chairs whose content is developed by both partnering organizations and which is scheduled to take place as a single session within a larger meeting conducted by the hosting organization.

Engagement in Joint Symposia is limited to live (face-to-face) educational activities conducted by non-profit professional medical societies, governmental agencies/regulatory authorities, and non-profit, disease/therapy-oriented membership organizations, including patient organizations, not affiliated with any commercial entity or healthcare provider/organization/institution.

All Joint Symposia must adhere to the policies outlined in the Policies Governing Joint Symposia at Other Organizations' Meetings.

The decision to propose a Joint Symposium to the ISHLT Board of Directors for consideration rests with the leadership of the appropriate ISHLT Scientific Council. All Applications to conduct a Joint Symposium at another organization's meeting must be completed and submitted to ISHLT by an Officer or the Education Workforce Leader of the sponsoring ISHLT Scientific Council.
