Program Overview

The VEINS (Venous Endovascular INterventional Strategies) returns as a hands-on, interactive course focusing on pulmonary embolism treatment, controversies in VTE management, management of superficial venous disease, and late state venous disease. Addressing the challenges of preventing, diagnosing, and managing venous disease, The VEINS will explore the complexities of caring for a diverse and growing patient population. Featuring an additional half-day practical imaging course, The VEINS is bigger, better, and more hands-on than ever before.
