Target Audience

The VEINS is designed for physicians specializing in interventional cardiology; interventional and neurologic radiology; vascular medicine; vascular surgery; podiatry; as well as fellows and residents; and allied health professionals (including nurses, nurse practitioners, technologists, and physician assistants) interested in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of venous disease.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, learners will be able to:
  • Describe medical, endovascular, and surgical therapies for superficial and chronic venous disease as well as other venous pathologies.
  • Discuss the role of imaging for diagnosis of venous disease and uses during intervention.
  • Identify the currently available therapeutic options and review the novel data in the management of superficial and deep vein disease.


This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the Academy for Continued Healthcare Learning (ACHL) and The VIVA Foundation. ACHL is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Academy for Continued Healthcare Learning designates this live activity for a maximum of 14.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurses may participate in this educational activity and earn a certificate of completion as AAPA, AANP, and ANCC accept AMA PRA Category 1 Credits through their reciprocity agreements.

Guidelines require that learners in CME activities be made aware of all relevant financial relationships affecting the presentation of the faculty member. ACHL ensures that all faculty and staff involved in the planning, development, and implementation of ACHL activities disclose financial relationships held within 24 months and that relevant financial relationships are mitigated before a CME activity occurs. Complete information will be provided to learners prior to the start of the educational activity.

Maintenance of Certification for Surgeons
Successful completion of this CME activity enables the learner to earn credit toward the CME requirement(s) of the American Board of Surgery’s Continuous Certification program. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit learner completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABS credit.

ACHL will begin submitting MOC points starting November 15, 2024, and the 1st of the month after that through December 31. MOC points MUST be claimed by December 31, 2024. By claiming surgery credit and providing your date-of-birth, you consent to have ACHL and/or our educational partners submit your participation in this activity to the ABS through the ACCME PARS system.

Participants may claim CME credit for sessions attended live, either in-person or virtually. CME credits are not available for sessions viewed on demand.
