The Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE) has made seven of ts Academy courses free to access online.
On its website, the society states: “While much of our regular routines have come to a halt as a result of the current crisis, your IR [interventional radiology] education should not have to. In an effort to support our community during these challenging times, CIRSE has now made seven CIRSE Academy courses free to access. This offer is only available for a limited time, so do not wait up! Find the courses that interest you, add them to your cart and check out—you will be enrolled at no cost!
“In addition, CIRSE has made more than 190 lectures from CIRSE congresses of the past year, including ECIO, ET, and CIRSE 2019 available free of charge.”
The seven online current courses currently available are:
- Hepatocellular carcinoma
- Management of acute arterial gastro-intestinal haemorrhage
- Metastatic bone disease
- Primary lung cancer
- Renal cancer
- Superior vena cave (SVC) stenting for treatment of malignant obstruction
- Vascular access and closure
Completing each course earns the participant CME (continuing medical education) credits.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, CIRSE and the Asia Pacific Society of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology (APSCVIR) have jointly published a checklist for interventional radiologists to use when preparing their department for COVID-19 patients.
