Face-Off Competition

International physicians can attend VIVA at a discounted rate by participating in the Face-Off Competition by presenting original research or an interesting case with a focus on complex procedures, complication management, advanced and novel techniques, or new technology. Presenters will face-off with VIVA faculty for seven minutes followed by three minutes of Q&A. VIVA faculty will judge each presentation on clarity, interest, value, originality, and depth/scope. The top three winners of the Competition will enter the "VIVA Face-Off Winner's Circle" and present in the VIVA Global Theater on Thursday. Participants will not
  • be given advance notice, so you must be present in the Global Theater on
Thursday, September 14 , 4:00 – 4:30 PM.
    • Please plan to depart Las Vegas after 7:00 PM or on Friday, September 15, before Noon (hotel check-out).
