The DZHK has worked closely with the German Cardiac Society (DGK), Europe's largest cardiological society. Since 2013, the DZHK and the DGK have been jointly carrying out the "Basics of Cardiovascular Research" programme for young scientists. Three workshops are organised each year as part of the programme. If the young scientists participate in at least seven of a total of 13 workshops, they receive a further training certificate.
In 2018, DZHK Executive Board Chairman Prof. Thomas Eschenhagen was Conference President of the 84th Annual Conference of the DGK.
