This comprehensive review is designed to update your clinical knowledge-base as well as to help you pass your Vascular Surgery written exam. 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 exam 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.
