About Gulf Intervention Society Conference (GIS):

The Gulf Intervention Society was established at a time when the success of Gulf interventionists had been growing regionally and globally. The main aim of its composition was to gather efforts and opinions towards nominal goals that serve us as public, states and healthcare professionals for scientific, research and societal compatibility. GIS’s mission is to lead the Gulf interventional cardiovascular community through education, research, and quality patient care. To fulfil that mission, GIS recognizes its responsibility to promote the highest possible educational levels, research tools, community interactions and ethical behavior by its members. The group, which is part of the Gulf Heart Association, met to encourage national and regional interventionists to join the society, welcome their addition and participation, and develop a vision of cooperation between regional and international bodies in the field of Cardiovascular Intervention. GIS founders and coming members must recognize their responsibility towards patients, society, other physicians, and other health professionals.
