"Essential" learnings

New to peripheral interventions? Discover how to start with a programme specifically designed for interventional cardiologists who are making their way into the universe of peripheral procedures.

Are you interested in expanding your practice towards the rapidly-evolving field of peripheral interventions?  Discover how to start your peripheral Programme: join the "Essential" learning sessions of the PCR Peripheral Programme.

Fellows’ Course

With an unrestricted educational grant from Medtronic

The Course provides participants — over the entire morning — with an overview on the theoretical background of peripheral techniques, while diving into the details of everyday practice. Accordingly, this Fellows’ oriented Course also allows participants to exchange everyday experiences via peer-to-peer interactions.

Detailed programme to be communicated soon!
