Tsutomu Fujita M.D. has been the CEO of Sapporo Cardio Vascular Clinic since 2008. His clinic provides the most advanced medical technology in the cardiovascular field. The number of catheter treatment performed in 2016 was 2,314 cases which ranked second in Japan.
There is a big academic meeting called TCT (Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics) which will be held in Washington D.C. This time, Dr. Kashima and Dr. Kanno from our heart center will attend the meeting and now they are on the way.
Thanks to the Internet, we can easily get all the cutting-edge information without physical participation. We can also watch live operations, and even academic slides discussed during the meeting are available online.
Then why do I let them participate in this meeting physically?
1) In order to increase motivation
2) In order to strengthen opportunities for human exchange
3) Preparation for the global-level medical exchange
I specially choose and attend the academic meetings focusing on SHD and venous disease in order to look for the future path SCVC should take.
