EVC 2021

24th European Vascular Course

Maastricht, The Netherlands

Getinge continues to support EVC. EVC offers live workshops, including online hands-on training sessions. Participants will participate from home or in their local hospital. In all workshops, a limited number of participants will be digitally present in the studio and able to communicate with teachers and fellow delegates. All workshops have E-learning modules, explaining the content and preparation needed for the workshops. In some cases, specific instruments will be used, such as surgical models, computer programs, devices or simulators, depending on the nature of the workshop. In specific workshops, delegates will receive tools and/or devices at home or their local hospital. Participants will be instructed on how to set-up their working space.


Participants can sign up for specific Getinge courses. Each course has a limited number of participants. Once the sessions are fully booked, all registered participants can still watch the session online, without active participation.
