Scholarship Program

Registration for the Physicians in Training scholarships and Face-Off competition will reopen in Summer 2022. We hope you will join us at VIVA and The VEINS 2022 for a series of fellows & residents sessions designed to enhance your skill set as a vascular specialist and personal growth as an early-career professional. Participants 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 during the final general session of the VIVA conference.

The attendees of the fellows and residents scholarship program will have the exclusive opportunity to visit each commercial supporter of the 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.


WHO CAN APPLY?

  • 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
  • To qualify, you must attend the entirety of the course (The VEINS: October 3-4, VIVA: October 4-7)

Please note, diagnostic radiology and general surgery fellowships are ineligible for this program.

For any questions or to be added to our contact list for future scholarship opportunities, please email Christopher Ebbe at cebbe@vivaphysicians.org.
