Fellow/General Surgery Resident/Medical Student Activities

The fellow/resident/student educational and networking program will be held on Wednesday, May 29 through Saturday, June 1. 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.

This session, a collaboration among the three organizations and taught by leaders in each specialty, will focus on aneurysms involving the visceral vessels, as well as acute and chronic dissections.
