The 6 Chinese endovascular surgeons who were recently welcomed to the US to begin a medical mentorship in peripheral interventions concluded their month-long learning experience at the 17th annual New Cardiovascular Horizons (NCVH) Conference in New Orleans. The physicians included participation in the pre-conference Fellows Course, “Complex Strategies for Peripheral Interventions.” This comprehensive course included a hands-on workshop at the LSU Health Sciences Lab.
During the conference, the physician group was formally thanked and recognized for their completion of the mentorship by Dr. Craig Walker, HIPG Founder and Chairman Emeritus. “I also want to extend my sincere appreciation to Boston Scientific for their continued support of this critical program and all of HIPG members who were instrumental in facilitating the cath lab acheter viagra observation sessions,” stated Craig Walker.
The mentorship program, now in its third year, is a collaborative effort between HIPG and Boston Scientific. Program funding has been made possible through an ongoing grant from Boston Scientific. The mission of this partnership is to introduce these physicians to new and innovative endovascular techniques they will be able to share with their Chinese colleagues when they return home. Learning environments for the program include hands-on simulation labs and cath lab observation session.
