General Information

The WFITN General Assembly of members held in Val d Isere in January 2019 voted to accept a constitution change allowing for the formation of a Federation Assembly. The constitution amendment was made in order to promote the coordination of neurointervention societies throughout the world. It is now possible for neurointervention societies to become member societies of the WFITN. There is no cost associated with joining. The Federation Assembly will be held once a year and each society is entitled to send two representatives. A pre-determined topic will be discussed each year in order to co-ordinate policy on training, practice research and ethics as it pertains to neurointervention.
