About the Skills Training

The topic of the first training was “Advanced concepts of endovascular stroke and aneurysm treatment“ and used in vitro models and simulators.

Tutors were experienced inventionalists from the ESMINT faculty. The course were supported by the educational and engineering departments of our industry partners. Groups of 4 participants were supervised by one tutor.

For this first course, 20 applicants were selected.

The content of the program were specified by ESMINT and aligned with the ECMINT courses, in order to put the theoretical knowledge into practice.

Various industry partners were present at the same time so that participants can gain a holistic view of the possible therapy options and be exposed to a wide range of techniques and devices.
