Registration fees

This course is aimed at Interventional Radiologists. To further multidisciplinary team building, Interventional Radiologists may attend this course together with a colleague from the same hospital but of a different medical specialty under the registration type “Team Fee”.

Early registration fees (until October 18)

Course Registration – Single €550
Course Registration – Team** €800
CIRSE Member – Single €350
CIRSE Member – Team** €500
Nurse/Radiographer Non-Member* €280
Nurse/Radiographer Member* €210

Late registration fees (from October 19)

Course Registration – Single €700
Course Registration – Team** €1100
CIRSE Member – Single €450
CIRSE Member – Team** €700

Nurse/Radiographer Member* €310

* Registration needs to be accompanied by the Confirmation Form, signed by the head of department.
** Upon approval, (interventional) radiologists attending the course may bring with them a colleague from the same hospital but a different medical specialty, with whom they work together in a multidiscplinary team which is relevant for the treatment of the patient. These two physicians will then be able to attend the ESIR course under the “Team Fee”. Just choose the “Team Fee” and contact registration@esir.org with details regarding your non-IR colleague.
