Advances in Coronary Physiology

Simple Education essential guides Advances in Coronary Physiology is the premiere international course in coronary physiology. This is the 6th year this 5* rated course has been run which has quickly become established as the premier global interventional course in state-of-the-art coronary physiology. The course provides all you need to know to understand coronary physiology from learning the background basics of coronary physiology, to understanding the clinical trial data and implementation of coronary physiology in the catheter laboratory. 

Advances in Coronary Physiology course provides all you need to know to understand the basics of coronary physiology and what you need to do to implement coronary physiology into the cardiac catheter laboratory.
