VIVA and The VEINS are proud to host another outstanding Physicians in Training Program in 2022. Attendees will experience sessions designed to enhance their skill set as a vascular specialist and personal growth as an early-career professional. They will also join the general sessions at VIVA and The VEINS, providing a remarkable and well-rounded educational experience.

All program attendees will participate in the Face-Off competition, which offers the opportunity to present an interesting case or original research in a 7-minute session, followed by 3 minutes of Q&A from members of the VIVA faculty. Cases will focus on the endovascular or medical treatment of peripheral vascular disease. Presentations are judged on clarity, depth, originality, and interest to field. Winners will present their case in the Spotlight Theater on the final day of the VIVA conference.

Attendees will have the exclusive opportunity to visit each commercial supporter of the scholarship program during an intimate reception. During the reception, physicians in training will rotate through each booth to learn about each company and develop relationships with supporters as advocates of PVD diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment.
