Emory Practical Intervention Course - Southeastern Consortium (EPIC-SEC)

A session at Emory Practical Intervention Course - Southeastern Consortium (EPIC-SEC)

In the 35th anniversary of the conference, the Emory Practical Intervention Course - Southeast Consortium (EPIC-SEC) welcomes a large network of interventional cardiology and cardiac surgery colleagues specializing in coronary, structural and/or peripheral disease to further enhance the care of their patients, mentor and train future generations of cardiovascular specialists, and lead clinical research in the field.
