What is EXMINT?

In addition to ECMINT, which focuses on the theoretical basis for the full neurointerventional spectrum, ESMINT started EXMINT in 2018, a separate course dedicated to those physicians who want to perform only stroke treatment.

One EXMINT cycle comprises two 5-day courses, including lectures, small group tutorials, debates, and tests. The final examination will take place every September, prior to the annual ESMINT Congress in Nice, France.
