Access all contents of the 11th ProEducar Fellows Course

During the virtual SOLACI-CACI 2021 Congress, the 11th ProEducar Fellows Course—SOLACI’s traditional activity aimed at expanding knowledge and providing didactic tools for all interventional trainees in Latin America—was held.

The course was a huge success: almost 1500 people accessed the Andreas Gruentzig Virtual Room where the activity took place. Furthermore, over 35 prestigious speakers from all over Latin America and important international guests participated and lectured on the most relevant current topics, techniques, and procedures in our specialty.

The event lasted eight hours of intensive training and was divided into five specialized modules. As a complement, highly interesting on-demand seminars were also held.
