Endovascular Course for Young Vascular Specialists


In 2018, the Chinese Chapter of the IUA has started a new initiative
the IUA Endovascular Course for Young Vascular Specialists. The first two endovascular courses were held in May 2018 and 2019 in Beijing, China.

Purpose of the course
Endovascular therapy, as a promising minimally invasive technique, has been becoming more and more important, and for most peripheral vascular diseases (PVD) it is
nowadays the first-line treatment strategy.  
PVD cover a large range of vascular diseases, and in this field a lot of new devices and new techniques have emerged, so it is very difficult for the young vascular specialist to keep up with the progress.  
We aim to illuminate the detailed techniques of endovascular therapy to the young vascular specialists who know some basic rules and want to improve their skills to a higher level.
Because the time is a little limited, we will focus on a relatively small field at one time that will facilitate more discussion and deepen the knowledge communication. 
We hope that this course will help the young vascular specialists in their daily endovascular practice, and will deepen international exchange of know-how and friendship.

The Fourth IUA Endovascular Course for Young Vascular Specialists​ will be held online from May 20 to 22, 2021.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its influence on travel and gathering restriction, this course will be held online in English via Zoom. Participants can attend the course with free registration. Please submit your application to lizhaoxw@sina.com.
