Dear Colleagues and Delegates,
on behalf of the faculty and organizers, it is a great privilege and honor to welcome you to the European Vascular Masterclass in Lucerne. For years, this unique workshop has proven to be a very effective postgraduate training method for vascular surgeons. The techniques that are demonstrated are part of the fellowship of the European Board of Vascular Surgery (FEBVS) exam. The success of this European Vascular Masterclass is based on its focus on practical training on state-of-the-art infrastructure and the intensive supervision by a multi-lingual team of European tutors who have a vast experience in both vascular surgery and teaching. The close tutor-student interaction guarantees an intensive learning process. You will operate in pairs of two, using original vascular grafts, sutures, endovascular tools (i.e. wires, catheters, balloons, stents) as well as abdominal and thoracic endografts. The training atmosphere is relaxed and discussion is encouraged.
Limited seats are available, so please register early!
Join us for an enriching learning experience. We hope that you are as excited about the Lucerne/Sarnen workshop 2023 as we are and look forward to meeting you there!
