Program Description

This four day vein course is our most comprehensive vein course for physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners. It encompasses most commonly performed treatments like endovenous ablations (both radiofrequency and laser ablations). We also spend decent time on new non-tumescent, non-thermal endovenous ablation techniques like Venaseal and Clarivein. First two days are focused on various endovenous ablation techniques. Day 3 takes course attendees through practicalities of sclerotherapy and day 4 is dedicated to ins and outs of stab phlebectomy. Our course includes patient screening, consultation, scanning and planning treatment to hands-on treatments. We also cover most common insurance policies, how to bill. If you are new to vein care, this can prepare you for most aspects of your practice. All our courses are formatted in such a way that, we will take course attendees from relevant anatomy, physiology, pathology, diagnostics and finally treating.

Many of cardiologists, vascular surgeons, plastic surgeons and internist elect our courses because vein treatments had not been and many times still are not part of formal fellowship training. Additionally, many established practitioners come to us for newer non-thermal, non-tumescent techniques.

Audience


Cardiologists, vascular medicine trained physicians, vascular surgeons, plastic surgeons, dermatologists, internal medicine physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners who are part of phlebology practice, plan to be in such practice or considering to start phlebology practice physicians.

Residents or fellows who are interested in phlebology and vein treatments.

Vein Course Program Details:


Our course programs are designed very carefully and thoughtfully. Most of the times we will ask our registrants their basic knowledge and skills in phlebology and endovenous treatments. We also try to group attendees with their peers of same or similar specialty if we can. For example needs of cardiologists are different from even vascular medicine and from plastic surgoes and very different from internists. Each of our course is individually tailored based attendees and their baseline skill sets.
