July 5th – 9th 2018
Prague, Czech Republic
The IUA Course for Young Vascular Specialists has been the result of an initiative of the International Union of Angiology to promote the society among young vascular specialists and to bolster international contacts among vascular professionals from all around the world.
The first five courses were successfully organized in 2013-2017, hosting around 30 young vascular professionals and approximately 15 internationally renowned faculty members from four continents each time.
At this time we would like to invite young physicians, whether internists or vascular surgeons interested in the study of vascular disease, to participate in the Sixth IUA Course for Young Vascular Specialists that is to be held in July 2018 once again in Prague, Czech Republic, one of the most visited cities in Europe.
The main objective of the four-day course will be again to provide participants with a clinical and pathophysiological background in vascular disease with a focus on the recent developments in diagnosis and management. As the previous courses have clearly proved, one of the unique qualities of this seminar lays in its interactive mode and almost unending possibilities to discuss any of the interesting topics with the faculty or attending colleagues.
The International Union of Angiology welcomes applications from anyone matching the criteria listed below. 25-30 successful candidates will be selected by the organizers of each course. All on-site expenses (registration, accommodation and board) for all selected participants will be covered by the organizers.
The application must be submitted by April 15, 2018.
- be under 35 (in exceptional cases 40) years of age
- be vascular specialists (researchers and practicing clinicians working in the vascular field; persons active in clinical and basic research in which vascular disease is involved as part of the pathology; persons working within vascular centres who wish to deepen their theoretical and practical skills in the management of vascular disease)
- be fluent in English
- be able to cover travel expenses (all on-site expenses will be covered by the organizers).
