Simulation Training


Participants of the Simulation Training can follow live demonstrations of interventional techniques and practice certain procedures under the guidance of a technician and/or instructor.

Pre-registration is required for all Simulation Training sessions at an extra cost of €75 per session. Please click the appropriate boxes during your registration process for CIRSE 2017. If you are already registered for CIRSE 2017, just log in to your account to sign up for a training session.


Principles to practice: education and simulation skills training

This popular series of training sessions comprises a one-hour round-table discussion with experts in the field delivering key knowledge and practical tips, followed by one hour of hands-on experience using high-fidelity simulators.


Each session is aimed at delegates with a specific level of experience (core, intermediate or advanced), and the delivery of each session is adaptable to respond to the delegates’ interests, with emphasis placed on small group teaching, allowing for close interaction with the expert faculty.

The round-table discussions are themed around learning objectives which relate to a specific clinical or procedural topic. Equipment and devices related to the specific topic will be available to demonstrate deployment techniques.


Coordinators: M. Midulla (Dijon/FR), J.C. van den Berg (Lugano/CH)
