Who Should Attend
The target audience for this postgraduate course includes clinical practitioners treating patients with arterial and venous vascular disease in any capacity
Vascular Medicine Specialists
Cardiovascular and Cardiothoracic surgeons
Urologists and Nephrologists
Spine and Orthopedic Surgeons
Many lectures for management of these patients will also be helpful for intensivists and emergency medicine personnel who see patients with vascular disease. Past participants have included attending physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, as well as surgical and medical trainees such as residents and fellows.
The specialty of vascular surgery has evolved dramatically, but never more profoundly than in recent years. In view of the rapid development of novel, evolving technologies, the generation of information at a rate faster than at any time in history, and the unprecedented increases in population health concerns around circulatory disease, there has never been a more challenging time to be a vascular surgeon… or a time when it has been more critical to keep abreast of developments in the field! This course provides a unique function in educating attending surgeons as well as fellows, involving all of the Boston-area and major North East medical centers, providing perspectives from highly distinguished faculty, including many leaders in the field who are recognized authorities on a national and international scale.
