Who Should Attend?

This course is designed for those who have formal training in vascular medicine, cardiology, radiology or surgery that includes the evaluation and management, both from the clinical and interventional perspective, of patients with vascular diseases. Other practitioners (including internal medicine, general surgery, and general radiology) with interest in non-cardiac vascular disease would also benefit from attending. The target audience includes those who seek certification in general and/or endovascular medicine, or who are interested in a comprehensive, state-of-the-art review of vascular and endovascular medicine.
