Description:  AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ - maximum
Promedica International is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. This activity has been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.
Venue: Globalization pervades every aspect of our life. This is particularly true with vascular intervention – both coronary and peripheral. Although it has always been the purpose of this symposium to present that which is new and different in coronary and endovascular intervention, it has been equally important to place the avant garde in perspective. This 29th annual symposium is focused on creating such a perspective. Our international format with faculty from five continents gives us a worldwide perspective illustrating the cutting edge work performed both in and outside the US. Equally important is the perspective of how differing socioeconomic factors alter the performance of PCI in different cultures and different countries – usually achieving comparable results.
