Covid-19 Impact

Covid-19 has impacted each and every one of us and we at Vein & Wound Training Institute are not exception.
We have to reduce take extra safety steps and for time being courses were put on hold but have come up with protocol to run the courses safely.

We have taken several steps to ensure safety for our patients, course attendees and staff in our office. Following are steps in ensure safety

  • Our course attendees traveling outside the state get Covid-19 tested within 72 hours of travel or proof of Covid-19 vaccine.
  • Group size is only 1-3 attendees.
  • Temperature check on arrival to facility.
  • Mandatory use of masks.
  • Frequent hand washing. 

Course Schedule

Covid-19 pandemic had limited travel tremendously. We follow safe distancing and rest of state and federal advisories. The state of Massachusetts require Covid testing for most travelers. We offer hands training courses and try to have one or two real life procedures. During pandemic sometimes patients schedule changes in last minute. All these factors have forced us to make significant changes in how we conduct our courses. We have limited courses to only two or max three trainees at a time and we do not advertise dates. Please book course or email us at [email protected] and we will respond to you with available dates.

We try to schedule courses on consecutive days to help trainees to avoid multiple trips. Unfortunately,Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in significant changes on both our end and patients end i.e. we have increased interval between patient visits to avoid congestion in office, similarly patients need to change to their appointments in the last minute. For that reason, it has become difficult to schedule courses on consecutive days. Having said that please email us at [email protected] and we will try our best to accommodate your course on your preferred dates if we could.

Training Courses

We are a comprehensive vein and wound training center. We offer hands on courses for vein treatment. Our courses help physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners to diagnose common vein, and wound conditions and treat them with confidence.

Our two or three hands on wound training courses are designed for physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners. Trainees start their day with lectures which give them basics of wound healing, risk factors for chronic wounds, diagnosing associated conditions like arterial and venous insufficiency. Wound training also include all the procedures and treatments mostly employed in wound care like wound debridement, wound biopsies, chemical cauterization and wound packing etc. Application of devices like wound vac and compression device like Una boot is also part of training. We most of our course attendees should be able to treat wounds in their offices after attending these course even wound care was not part of their formal medical or surgical training.
