2022 ARCH FELLOWS PROGRAM

The 2022 ARCH Fellows Course led by directors Marc A. Sintek, MD and George S. Chrysant, MD will be held in conjunction to the 2022 ARCH Symposium. The course has been designed to provide current cardiology fellows foundational knowledge of interventional cardiology practices. Led by Faculty Experts, Fellows will hear didactic lectures, participate in small group case workshops to facilitate knowledge of complex PCI techniques, and gain hands on experience with heart anatomy through a mentored pig heart dissection. The course also features a Fellows Case Competition and exceptional opportunities to network with ARCH Faculty and Co-Fellows.
