Park City Conferences
The Dotter Interventional Institute organized six highly successful Interventional/Neurointerventional Conferences in Park City, Utah from 2005 to 2010. These conferences provided outstanding educational programs for interventional radiologists, neurointerventionalists, physician assistants, nurses and technologists. Prominent national and international faculty gave information and the latest updates on interventional techniques and emerging interventional treatments. Discussions about challenges of interventional practice and analysis of complications at morbidity-mortality sessions were very popular portions of the conferences. The educational program was organized for early morning and late afternoon sessions. Mid-days were reserved for skiing, snowboarding or sightseeing in beautiful Park City and its three ski resorts that were the venues of many of the 2002 Olympic skiing and snowboarding events.
Altogether, 944 attendees participated in these conferences. These included physicians, physician assistants, nurses and technologists, and industry representatives. Many attendees returned for multiple years. One hundred faculty members from Canada, Czech Republic, France, Greece, Korea, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Turkey, the United Kingdom and, of course, the United States participated. Despite six extremely successful meetings and the high level of enthusiasm of those who attend, the planning committee decided to end this meeting in 2010 due to changes in industry compliance requirements.
