EAPCI Fellows Course
European Interventional Cardiology Fellows Course
The European association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI) will be hosting its European Interventional Cardiology Fellows Course at EuroPCR 2017, on Monday 15 and Tuesday morning 16 May.
The Fellows Course has been designed to aid the continued development of young interventional cardiologists, at the early phase of their training.
What is this Course all about?
This Course will provide participants with an overview on the theoretical background of interventional techniques, and will dive into the details of everyday practice by reviewing relevant case presentations. It will offer a broad overview from very basics, such as the choice of catheters and guidewires, to more advanced interventional techniques, such as treatment of bifurcations or chronic total occlusions. A brief visit into the field of structural interventions will also be part of this Course.
Accordingly, this Fellows’ oriented Course will also allow participants to exchange everyday experiences via peer-to-peer case presentations, supported by the commentary from experts in the field.
What to expect from this Course?
All topics will be covered by the state-of-the-art lectures of renowned experts, which will be open to questions from the participants. Review of cases and complications, in a preliminary session or integrated in the lectures or questions, offer examples of practical applications of the concepts discussed.
The EAPCI Fellows Course grants participants with the opportunities to meet the field’s experts, and to create their own networking experiences within the young community. Indeed, this interaction will hopefully establish links and long-term relationships helpful for personal development and a greatest integration of European professionals in Interventional Cardiology.
