2017 Program open to Qualifying Residents and FellowsVIVA offers a unique opportunity for U.S. physicians-in-training (in the vascular field) to engage in The VEINS & VIVA beyond the many other educational opportunities offered! There is an exclusive Reception planned for you with our VIVA Board members and supporters of our Physicians-in-Training program. For those who enter the Face-Off Competition, you will have the opportunity to present a case to faculty judges that could potentially earn you a spot in the Thursday VIVA Face-Off Winner's Circle! To enter the Face-Off Competition, you may present 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 will enter the "VIVA Face-Off Winner's Circle" and present on Thursday in the VIVA Global Theater. 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 time). This competition is open to U.S. fellows and qualifying residents currently enrolled in an accredited vascular program.
