GENERAL INFORMATION

The 11thnnual Introduction to Academic Vascular Surgery (IAVS) conference will take place April 6 – 8, 2017 at the premier, world class educational facility Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) located in Tampa, FL.

This is a continuation of a meeting first established at the University of Rochester (formerly known as the Rochester Vascular Meeting), and hosted there from 2006 – 2010. The meeting has been directed at medical (or other) students and general surgical residents not yet committed to vascular surgery, the content has been a mix of education and recruiting. The purpose of the meeting is to teach the process of clinical research and communication (written and oral) of scientific findings in general, and to provide a forum for attendees to present their work in a competitive format with peer and expert feedback – as such, current vascular residents and fellows will also benefit from this format. No similar meeting exists, and feedback from attendees, faculty, program directors, and representatives of national societies feel that this is a very valuable part of the overall educational curriculum.

PURPOSE OF THE MEETING

The Introduction to Academic Vascular Surgery conference is designed for students and residents who are interested in the field of vascular surgery. Students are invited to attend through a competitive abstract process. Nationally recognized faculty members will present information regarding vascular surgery and the role of academia and research, in addition to providing instruction for endovascular procedures in the Surgical Simulation Suite at CAMLS.
