Fellows Course



Dear PCI and CTO enthusiasts / Dear friends,

We are excited to announce the second Fellow Course during the legendary Swiss CTO Summit 2021. The interest in total occlusion and complex coronary procedures are increasing with many courses around the world. The Fellow Course of the Swiss CTO Summit will not be just another course, we have a different meeting in mind! This fellow course will be held in a very interactive and familiar ambiance. The spectrum will cover all topics from reviewing the basics, learning tips & tricks to mastering complex techniques. Practical lectures and hands-on workshops are the basis of this course.

We warmly recommend this half day course held on Wednesday September 22nd, 2021. As the Pandemic made physical meetings not possible this course will be the one of the first with physical presence.

Please register early as places are limited !
