A rich training program including Interactive Cases & Hands-on Training Sessions for an updated management of peripheral artery diseases
Topics covered in the Programme include:
Over the last few years, the Working Group on Aorta & Peripheral Vascular Diseases has boosted its activities thanks to its pivotal role in the development of the 2011 and 2017 ESC Guidelines on Peripheral Arterial Diseases, and the production of highly cited position papers and consensus documents.
Recently, the Working Group has moved on organizing educational initiatives, including live webinars, and is now ready to launch its first Educational Training Programme "Arteries, from head to toe".
The Educational Training Programme aims to provide physicians with up-to-date knowledge of peripheral artery disease in order to guide management.

The Educational Training Programme "Arteries, from head to toe" will be submitted to the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) for accreditation.
The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS), www.uems.net.
Attendance certificates for participants will be provided upon request.
Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
Find information on the process to convert EACCME credit to AMA credit. Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME for ECMEC credits are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
This educational programme is accredited for CME Credit(s). Each participant should claim only those hours of credits that have actually been spent in the educational activity.
