GulfPCR-GIM 2014

77

The 4th edition of GulfPCR-GIM 2014, which takes place in Dubai, UAE, will bring together interventional cardiologists and cathlab staff from throughout the world to share experience and knowledge in order to improve cardiovascular care for all patients.

Welcoming physicians from throughout the Middle East and around the world, the 2014 edition of GulfPCR-GIM will take place at the Grand Hyatt in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, from 11 to 12 December. Dedicated to improving cardiovascular care in the Middle East and surrounding regions, this highly interactive Course offers an international platform for sharing the experience and traditions of all participants. Growing out of the 2011 association of two dynamic groups – PCR, one of the foremost organisations for medical education today, and GIM, the Gulf Interventional Meeting – GulfPCR-GIM brings together PCR and GIM’s long-standing commitment to exchange, education and evolution in the clinical technologies and techniques used in interventional cardiovascular medicine today.

Led by course directors Ibrahim Al Rashdan from Kuwait, Haitham Amin from Bahrain, Andreas Baumbach from the UK and Jean Fajadet from France, GulfPCR-GIM has quickly become an important forum in the region offering its participants the chance to experience the cutting edge in cardiovascular and interventional medicine.

The 2014 edition of GulfPCR-GIM will have several new features, including, for the first time, “Live” case transmissions from the King Fahd Armed Forces Hospital, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. There will be a special programme this year on “How to start a peripheral programme”, addressing a growing demand from interventional cardiologists required to treat peripheral artery disease, a serious medical challenge often related to patients suffering from cardiovascular disease.
