New York, NY, April 28, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Fellows are invited to attend the American Venous Forum Spring Fellows Course in Venous Disease. The Fellows Course is May 11-13, 2014 at Englewood Hospital in Englewood, New Jersey. 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 Fellows Course is funded through a Grant Program that covers registration and most travel expenses. Please visit www.veinforum.org for more information and to register.
The goal of the course is to educate and update 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.
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 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
Faculty interaction is crucial to the fellows fully benefitting from this course. The faculty consists of AVF leaders in the field of venous disease and local experts from each host site. Committee members and faculty include: Carl Black, MD, Sheila Coogan, MD, Ellen Dillavou, MD, Steven Elias, MD, Mark Garcia, MD, Kathleen Gibson, MD, Jennifer Heller, MD, Manju Kalra, MD, Nicos Labropoulos, PhD, Peter Lawrence, MD, William Marston, MD, Mark Meissner, MD, and Peter Pappas, MD.
