Fellows Education

EDUCARE is a comprehensive suite of education and training programs that support healthcare professionals in the delivery of patient care worldwide.

 

 

Peripheral Interventions Fellows Programs

Our Fellows Training Programs have been designed to augment the educational needs of Interventional Radiology Fellows. Led by  highly-respected physician faculty, these programs are designed to help increase understanding of the clinical, procedural, and technical challenges respective to peripheral vascular, interventional oncology, and peripheral embolization procedures. All programs have been designed to drive clinical proficiency and foster increased patient access to care. Timing of these programs is intended to be complementary to what fellows are currently experiencing in their training.

Program Faculty is comprised of Program Directors from around the country, officers of National Societies, investigators from landmark clinical trials, textbook authors and Key Opinion Leaders who contribute to the development of clinical guidelines.
