3rd Annual UCLA / SVS Symposium: A Comprehensive Review and Update of What’s New in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery

Beverly Hills, California
Aug. 25, 2018 to Aug. 27, 2018
The Beverly Hilton
Mar 1


This 3-day course represents a joint effort of the Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery at UCLA and the Society for Vascular Surgery. This program will offer an in-depth review of our specialty for those preparing to take the vascular board examinations as well as providing the basic didactic education for the vascular residents and fellows in training. The course recognizes four major pillars of vascular surgery practice, which include (1) conventional open operations, (2) catheter-based intervention (endovascular surgery), (3) the medical aspect of patient management, and (4) diagnostic imaging and noninvasive testing.

Vascular Fellows and Residents: Please DO NOT fill out the registration form and pay the registration fee. A special invitation and application will be emailed to Program Directors in mid-June 2018. You must apply with that special application from your Director to attend the course at no cost, as it will be covered by generous educational grant support.
