Fellow and Resident Boot Camp at SCCT2017
Share |


Following the successful 2016 pre-program session specifically for Fellows and Residents interested in learning more about cardiovascular CT, SCCT2017 is now offering two "Boot Camp” sessions as part of the regular SCCT2017 program!

Designed by members of the SCCT Program Committee with input from the Fellows and Residents in Training (FiRST) committee, these sessions will cover the clinical aspects of cardiovascular CT, including appropriate indications and applications of this powerful technology, as well as highlight potential career paths in cardiovascular CT in both private practice and academia. All radiology residents and cardiology fellows who are planning on attending SCCT2017 are encouraged to attend.
