The postgraduate course in vascular surgery provides a relatively focused, case–driven approach towards multiple topics of interest in vascular disease. As such, it will try to help provide a unique approach for the evaluation, diagnostic management and specific treatment options for a whole array of vascular problems. This will provide a comprehensive review of the evaluation and management of this patient population in an effort to try to improve outcomes through a better understanding of pathogenesis, the diagnosis, and the natural history of the disease processes. The learning format will include a very brief case presentation, short lectures by the faculty followed by a panel discussion where we will address some issues of the case presentation as well as specific questions relating to the presentations. This interactive session will help the course attendees improve their knowledge and competence in the practice of treating patients with vascular disease. The target audience for this postgraduate course is very broad. It includes those treating patients with vascular disease in any capacity which includes vascular, general, and cardiothoracic surgeons as well as interventional radiologist and cardiologists and may also be helpful for intensivists as well as emergency medicine personnel who see patients with vascular disease. Those who wish to have a greater depth of understanding and appreciation for the evaluation and treatment options for patients with vascular disease will clearly benefit from this course. The qualifications of the participants can be on the level of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, as well as trainees such as residents and fellows are also welcome to attend.
