Hilton Orlando Bonnet creek

Overview

This three-day meeting exposes the advanced interventional cardiology trainee to all facets of coronary, structural, and endovascular intervention. The faculty features renowned pioneers and innovators in the field, as well as rising stars in interventional cardiology. The format consists of didactic lectures, panel discussions of clinical case scenarios and hot topics in interventional cardiology, and interactive angiographic reviews of challenging cases. Fellow have ample opportunities to interact with faculty through traditional question/answer formats. Participants will also have the chance to interact with faculty during “fireside chats,” which allow for open discussion of career development.

Audience

This program is designed for trainees currently in (or entering) interventional cardiology fellowship programs. Plus, currently practicing interventional cardiologists, clinical cardiologists, catheterization laboratory nurses, cardiovascular technicians, and other healthcare professionals involved in the performance of cardiovascular interventional procedures will find the 3-day curriculum a helpful and extensive review.

02.

Highlights

The Fellows Course offers in-depth coverage of all the major issues in today’s practice of interventional vascular medicine, including the rationale for revascularization procedures in simple and complex lesion subsets, the performance of basic and complex angioplasty, and the appropriate use of devices such as drug eluting stents and adjunctive devices. The course also emphasizes pharmacological therapies, the use of intravascular imaging/physiology, and non-coronary topics such as vascular medicine/endovascular intervention and structural heart disease.

03.

Learning Objectives

After completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Compare and contrast current practices and controversies surrounding advanced coronary and vascular interventions
  • Appraise clinical data regarding cutting-edge technologies and pharmacologic therapeutics
  • Apply evidence-based medicine from clinical trials during revascularization decisions and techniques
