2024 Program

The Physicians-in-Training program at VIVA and The VEINS offers a series of fellows & residents sessions designed to enhance your skill set as a vascular specialist and personal growth as an early-career professional.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

• U.S. physicians in training
• Current 1st- or 2nd-year fellows in interventional radiology, cardiology, interventional cardiology, vascular medicine, or vascular surgery
• Residents in PG 1-5 vascular surgery or PG 1-5 interventional radiology

Diagnostic radiology and general surgery fellowships are ineligible for this program.

FACE-OFF COMPETITION

Program participants who attend VIVA 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 focus on the endovascular or medical treatment of peripheral vascular disease. Presentations are judged on clarity, depth, originality, and interest to field.

Additional 2024 Physicians-in-Training program information and important dates coming soon.

Please email Christopher Ebbe at cebbe@viva-foundation.org to receive information about future programs and to be added to our mailing list.
