Radial to Peripheral Education Program

Cordis is pleased to announce two installments of our Radial to Peripheral Education Program, hosted by Dr. Craig Walker and the Cardiovascular Institute of the South in Houma, LA on Aug. 23-24 and Oct. 11-12.

This two-day program is designed for radial peripheral proceduralists and will provide advanced clinical expertise and practical training in radial to peripheral procedures. Content will be presented via didactic presentation, live case observations, and case reviews. In addition, physicians are invited to bring a member of their team (scrub/nurse) to encourage a team approach to radial peripheral therapy and better ensure procedural and program success.
