SNIS/Joint Cerebrovascular Section Fellows Course .
Greetings! Welcome to the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery/Joint Cerebrovascular Section Fellows Course, scheduled in conjunction with the SNIS 18th Annual Meeting. Hosted both in-person at The Broadmoor on July 29-30 and virtually on July 30, this forum provides senior and junior fellows an invaluable opportunity to dive into neurointervention, and test the waters across a broad spectrum of topics from clinical practice to product innovations to the future trends of the field. And while this two-day journey provides all attendees with additional training designed to enhance their curriculums back home, they also get the added benefit of exploring this vast and dynamic specialty with both the veterans and industry leaders who have partnered together on this ever-evolving journey.
For in-person attendees, it all kicks off on Thursday evening with a hands-on lab/reception where you can enjoy some dedicated interaction learning more about the tools of the trade currently on the market as well as what is coming down the pike. This is your opportunity to handle various devices in a simulated environment in the company of those who can share the particulars of each instrument’s performance and answer all your questions on the spot. On Friday, both in-person and virtual attendees will dive into four distinct session blocks, all designed to provide you with a 360-degree perspective of neurointervention. Starting with a session on access, the program heads into aneurysm treatment and stroke. Finally, you’ll wrap-up with a session dedicated to “The Job”.
While the planning committee has worked hard to develop a program that would be well worth your time from an educational standpoint, we have also taken great care to guarantee the meeting’s feasibility for any interested party. To that end, not only is there zero cost to attend, but also each in-person participant will also be awarded a $750 travel stipend. This offer is reflective of the mutual commitment of both SNIS and the AANS/CNS Joint Cerebrovascular Section to invest in the future of our field . . . and you, the eventual scientific caretakers who will one day be leading it and innovating new opportunities to advance neurointerventional research and treatments for the good of patients everywhere.
Thank you for your enthusiasm and eagerness to make a difference. We look forward to seeing you this summer!
