Vascular and Endovascular Surgery: A Case-Driven Symposium is organized by Harvard Medical School (HMS) and will be held during Apr 26 - 28, 2018 at Hilton Boston Back Bay, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America.
The target audience for this medical event is Specialty Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants who practice in Cardiology and Vascular Medicine, Surgery, and Thoracic Surgery. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 19.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
Conference Overview :
The postgraduate course in vascular surgery provides a relatively focused, case–driven approach towards multiple topics of interest in the vascular disease. As such, it will try to help provide a unique approach to 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.
Conference Objectives :
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
• Recognize optimal medical management and identify which current treatments are appropriate for carotid artery disease
