The Jacobs Institute is leading in vascular health thanks to its clinical expertise and advanced training techniques. By training with 3D printed models that mimic patient anatomy, an ideal hands-on training environment is created for a range of applications. Experiential learning helps improve competencies for entry-level trainees and patient safety.

Watch this 30-minute webinar and learn how The Jacobs Institute uses 3D printed vascular models to:

  • Advance neurovascular understanding of anatomy and techniques
  • Help residents and medical-device engineers understand how and why procedures are used
  • Teach surgical techniques through hands-on experience
