Recommended Student Programme 2013
To ensure that you get the most out of the congress we have selected a range of courses and sessions that are especially relevant for medical students as well as doctors just starting out in their careers.
CIRSE 2013 Full Programme
Medical students are welcome to attend all sessions at CIRSE 2013, apart from the ‘Hands-On Workshops’. We do advise, however, that some sessions assume a high level of specialist knowledge.
|Dedicated Student Sessions|
Especially for you, we have arranged sessions with the interventional radiology specialists at CIRSE 2013 (also in Spanish, as a one-time exception). These leading doctors will take you on a virtual tour of interventional radiology, including questions and answer sessions, and hands-on experience. More information available soon!
