)-- On behalf of the American Venous Forum, Fellows are invited to attend the Spring Fellows Course in Venous Disease. The Fellows Course is May 11-13, 2014 at Englewood Hospital in Englewood, New Jersey. Please visit veinforum.org for more information and to register.
These intimate gatherings of no more than 40 fellows from vascular and interventional radiology programs from around the country, along with a faculty consisting of experts in the field of venous disease and representatives from sponsoring companies, will prove to be a stimulating interaction for all.
The Fellows Course in Venous Disease is presented for the benefit of fellows within the specialty of vascular surgery, interventional radiology, vascular medicine and associated programs. The course program will cover:
• Anatomy and pathophysiology of venous disorders and noninvasive diagnostics
• Chronic venous insufficiency (superficial & deep)
• Pregnancy, upper extremity venous issues, acute DVT and wound care
• Future of venous disease
• The business of venous disease
The goal of the course is to educate and update the fellows regarding the latest theories and developments in the clinical practice of vein disease management. Fellows will gain an overall understanding of vein disease to allow them to successfully incorporate venous knowledge, skills and techniques into their overall practice as they make the transition from training to the clinical practice.
