Leipzig Interventional Course (LINC) is scientific live course designed to provide a global platform permitting the interdisciplinary discussion of new methods to treat patients in need of endovascular interventions.
The annual in-person congress and course is held in Leipzig, Germany, and every year more than 5000 attendees from about 70 countries participate in the event. Germany is known to have made large efforts to support the so called “knowledge economy” by promoting German expertise in a few key industries that help set the global agenda and attract “like-minded” from all over the world. Areas promoted are energy and the environment; transport and logistics; medicine and health care; chemicals and pharmaceuticals; and financial services.
Leipzig is the nexus for medical meetings, some of which are pushing the envelope with innovative technology — such as LINC, a congress that promotes interdisciplinary discussion of new methods and allowing conclusions for daily interventional practice for vascular surgeons and other interventionalist specialities.
LINC is a medical conference that fulfills the critically important role in the ongoing education of physicians, technicians, nurses, and other health care providers. However, there are many other important functions in addition to merely imparting education, such as sharpening your skills, the ability to interact with peers and KOLs, trying new equipment, evolving novel and locally relevant ideas, and developing consensus in contentious areas all leading to improvement in health-care delivery and patient outcomes.
We will be attending LINC 2018. See you there!
