This annual 2 ½ day course held every May or early June in Chicago prepares IR fellows for private practice or academia with training that may not have been covered extensively during the fellowship year. It is also an excellent opportunity to network with practicing interventional radiologists from both academic & private practice settings and device representatives from numerous industry partners. Contact Jennifer Goubeaux for more information.
