2016 SVS Fellow/General Surgery Resident/Medical Student Educational Program

Learning Objective:

The overarching goal of the program is to allow residents and students to explore their interest in vascular surgery. The program provides an excellent opportunity for learners of all levels (first year medical students to senior level surgical residents to vascular surgery trainees) to meet other learners with similar interests and importantly provides students and residents with the opportunity to meet members and leaders of the vascular surgical community.

General Surgery Resident/Medical Student Scholarship Program Open and Endovascular Simulation Training*

The objective of the Resident and Student Simulation Training Program is to provide novice learners with an opportunity to learn how to perform basic vascular procedures. The program offers multiple simulation stations with varying simulations of vascular procedures including performance of a vascular anastomosis on an arterial model (medical students), performance of an open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (surgical residents), and performance of an EVAR or TEVAR in a safe and stress free environment. Attendees also will be able to participate in stations involving basic knot tying, instrument handling, needle accuracy/placement, and suture placement and closure skills. As an added bonus, participants will be able to compete in mini Vascular Surgery Skills Competition (results to be announced at Friday’s Residency Fair).

(Please note this event is open only to the scholarship recipients of the Vascular Annual Meeting Travel and Diversity Medical Student Scholarship Programs.)
