International Vascular Cork @ ASSERT

International Vascular Cork, Faculty & Participants

The International Vascular Course was held in The ASSERT Centre, College of Medicine & Health, UCC, Cork on the 1st & 2nd November 2018.

This course was geared towards vascular surgical trainees and practising vascular surgeons who wished to develop their skills in open dissection as well as endovascular procedures. Participants gained hands-on experience with open surgical dissection and reconstruction procedures on cadavers in our state-of-the-art purpose built facility. The ASSERT facilities allowed for real time and post-procedure feedback from expert faculty. The course focuses on endovascular procedures – Aortic and peripheral interventions ranging from basic to more challenging cases on Mentice Simulators.

The course was organised by Mr Brian J. Manning and Mr Greg Fulton, Vascular Surgeons at Cork University Hospital and facilitated by a team of expert faculty.
