In December 2015 WIST launched its modular scheme for the training in interventional stroke treatment. The training includes high fidelity simulation practice and placement in interventional stroke centers of excellence inside and outside the EU. The society also issues consensus statements and guidelines in the field of endovascular stroke treatment.
