These complement the Institute’s extensive portfolio of ‘hands-on’ training for interventional cardiologists, nurses and pharmacists. Over 50 of the Institute’s courses are CME-accredited. ‘To date, more than 14,000 physicians have participated,’ said Prof. Jean Marco MD, course director for the Crossroads Institute.
Virtual simulators and a virtual
in-house catheterisation lab enable physicians to practice the latest in cardiac and vascular therapies. Live case broadcasts from hospitals across Europe demonstrate real-time catheterisation lab events.
Programmes offered include the latest stenting techniques (e.g. bio-absorbable stents); revascularisation strategy in diabetics; stenting high risk patients; prevention and management of PCI complications.
The Institute and its education programmes are sponsored by Abbott Vascular, but course content is decided by an independent steering committee.
Languages: Mostly English, but other EU language-courses are available.
