Off-line Access Comes to VESAP4

A mobile app, for Apple products only, is now available for the approximately 600 users of the fourth edition of the Vascular Education and Self-Assessment Program, which debuted in mid-August.

The mobile app greatly enhances VESAP’s usefulness, by permitting off-line use. It is a major enhancement of VESAP4, say editors Drs. Amy Reed and Greg Modrall.

"For years, users had to be on a computer with Internet access, making it a challenge to use if they didn’t have access or if they were in a location that blocks certain sites," said Dr. Modrall. "Now people will be able to use VESAP in virtually any environment, such as while waiting for a case to start or traveling on a plane."

VESAP4 also offers easier navigation, new and updated content, simplified tracking of CME and MOC certificates and expanded bookmarking and annotation. For more information and to purchase VESAP4, visit
