EVC welcomes iMEP

European Vascular Course (EVC) is the yearly hands-on training congress held in the Netherlands with the scientific sessions of Arterial, Venous, Vascular Access and Cardiovascular.  For the very first time, training opportunities will be shared in a unique virtual setting on 7-8 March 2021.

Chairman, Professor. Michael Jacobs and Dr. Maarten M. Snoeijs have invited iMEP to host 4 training workshops at the 24th occasion of EVC.  We take great pleasure and pride in this recognition and opportunity to contribute to the European Vascular community.  This is the result of the excellent reputation of iMEP's daily training activities for healthcare providers and our expertise in hands-on trainings in a virtual setting.
