Excellence in Continuing Medical Education

Vascular Surgery

“…I believe it is a ‘great course’”  *  “I feel [the course] helped me pass.”  *

The Osler Institute has over thirty years of experience in preparing physicians for their board examinations. We can help you today.
A survey of Osler participants shows significantly higher pass rates for Osler students compared with those who did not take our course.
The difference in pass rates is difficult to explain away by self-selection in attendance over-representing those who would have passed without taking the Osler course.

“Osler gives … unfair advantage” said a Board Trustee. “He’s wrong and right,” reported an Osler participant who heard the trustee’s comment. “The course does give candidates an advantage – but it’s not unfair.” This student had failed his boards before taking the Osler course but told us that he passed easily after doing the course. “This time didn’t even feel like an exam. It was like having a discussion with a colleague.”

The Osler course can work for you too.

The Vascular Surgery Written Review is a 3-day seminar consisting of didactic lectures (with searchable e-syllabus containing PDFs of all PowerPoint presentations), Question and Answer time at the end of each topic, and two dedicated Question and Answer sessions.  This comprehensive review is designed to update your clinical knowledge-base as well as to help you pass your Vascular Surgery exams (Qualifying or MOC).  Emphasis is on evidence-based medicine and board-relevant standards of care, incorporating current best practice concepts, testing and treatment approaches, and clinical follow-up techniques.  As a result, it provides a good review for your Vascular Surgery written exams as well as providing a thorough review for physicians in practice.  Many of our previous participants found the course provided them with: improved diagnostic and planning strategies, a better understanding of the best surgical and non-surgical treatment approaches, a better grasp of perioperative critical care, and helped them recognize areas of weakness for self-study.


Topics Covered include:
Cerebrovascular Diseases *** Aortic Artery Aneurysm *** Atherosclerosis *** Thoracic Aorta Dissection *** Carotid Artery Occlusion *** Abdominal Aorta *** Arterial Fibro Dysplasia *** Iliac Artery Aneurysms *** Management of Strokes *** Carotid Endarterectomy *** Carotid Artery Reconstruction *** Extracranial Carotid Aneurysm *** Visceral Artery Diseases *** Carotid Body Tumors *** Mesenteric Artery Diseases *** Renal Vascular Disease *** Endovascular Surgery *** Vascular Trauma *** Peripheral Artery Disease *** Upper Extremity Arterial Disease *** Venous Diseases *** Lower Extremity Arterial Disease *** Venous Occlusion *** Venous Insufficiency *** Venous Ulcers *** Complications


The Osler Institute is going green and providing our attendees with the latest technology to assist in their review. Each registrant will receive upon arrival at the course, a USB drive with searchable PDF copies of the presentations offered during the review. A printed syllabus can be preordered for a small additional fee.
