ESIR 2015


The 2015 ESIR course programme consists of 7 courses held at different European university hospitals. All courses are held in English.

Fundamental Courses

The feedback on structural changes introduced last year has been overwhelmingly positive. As a result, fundamental courses will continue to cater to doctors who are either beginning their IR career, or who would like to refresh or broaden their existing portfolios. Lectures will focus on both theory and clinical application, with ample time devoted to hands-on learning. The course content is specifically tailored to reflect the priorities and goals outlined in the European Curriculum and Syllabus for Interventional Radiology.

Expert Courses 

Expert courses are specially designed for experienced practitioners who are already familiar with the topic’s theoretical aspects and the relevant literature. Distinguished faculty members guide these sessions, but considerable emphasis is placed on facilitating exchanges amongst participants, who have ample opportunity to share and discuss their own experiences. Sessions also include a variety of practical exercises, while lecture times are limited and primarily focused on outlining specific “Tips & Tricks”.
