Hey! You don’t want to miss that intensive course: Cardiovascular Ultrasound in Health & Exercise Sciences

Are you a grad student, postdoc or researcher who would like to develop/improve vascular, cerebrovascular and/or cardiac ultrasound skills ?

Well, you cannot miss that intensive course during which you will gain knowledge and practical skills related to the use of ultrasound applications.

This summer school will be held from July 13th to 17th 2015 at the Centre for Heart, Lung and Vascular Health, University of British Columbia – Okanagan Campus.

Importantly, registration closes on May 1st 2015.
