COURSE PRESENTATION
The progressive increase in access and complexity of percutaneous techniques for coronary diagnosis and intervention make its understanding central in the curriculum of the current cardiologist. This course seeks to present, in a dynamic and interactive way, a complete approach of current knowledge and practice in this area.
The course will be structured in two independent modules.
This module provides coverage of the basic curriculum of interventional cardiology in coronary disease, seeking to provide the essential knowledge and tools to begin the practice in this area.
TARGET AUDIENCE
a)Fellows of the Interventional Cardiology Sub-specialty

b)Cardiology residents

c)Residents from other medical specialties
