14th Vascular Bootcamp

October 9th, 2024 at 17:00 - October 11th, 2024 at 13:00
René Kieny Education Center — Gepromed

We are happy to welcome you on October 09th — 11th , 2024!

This event is dedicated to education on the last generations of simulators and simulation environment we developed within our network. It is the opportunity for vascular residents to compete and to be taught by an outstanding international faculty.

One operating room, one immersive room and one room for hands-on practice: René Kieny Education center provides you with a surgical environment for learners. Cameras continually record the intervention or workshops which will be used as feedback tools during the debriefing with an expert. The goal is to mainly focus on simulation practice of Peripheral and Aortic Endovascular procedures as a beneficial tool for surgical practice improvement on manufacturers' devices. 

20 vascular residents will have the possibility to rotate in pairs through several workshops, during which they will be assessed on their performance. Only 3 winners will be announced, after the debriefing at the end of the Bootcamp!
