Peer to Peer (Case Observations)

This one-day program allows healthcare professionals to observe two surgical live cases in various locations. AtriCure recognizes the importance to observe, having discussions about the specific ablation strategy with practitioners from hospitals with extensive experience, learn about best patient selection and follow-up. In the majority of the training centers, attendees are able to scrub in. Please note that some training centers will only be able to accommodate two attendees at a time. This restriction is due to the importance of observation during clinical cases and hospital regulations.

Location: Various locations

Proctoring (Case Support)
