Swedish Medical Center and the Seattle Science Foundation are teaming up once again to provide training in the transradial (or wrist) approach for interventional cardiologists.
Titled “The Transradial Approach: A Case-based and Hands-on Training Course,” this two-day course runs from March 1-2, 2013. The faculty consists of cardiology chief Dr. Peter J. Casterella and the staff at Swedish Medical Center, along with Dr. Sunil V. Rao from Duke.
According to the organizers, this CME course:
“…will provide attendees with in-depth education and training on the fundamentals of the transradial access technique. Attendees will participate in radial simulator training, direct observation of cases in the cath lab, breakout sessions and roundtable discussions. Live cases will be broadcast from the cath lab, and expert faculty will give case presentations and didactic lectures on epidemiology, pharmacology, technique and equipment.”
So, if you are on the West Coast, and you want to get in on what is a rapidly growing technique in the U.S., you might want to check this course out. Also check out the impressive testimonials from previous attendees.
