This International Symposium continues to endorse the novelty of the Angiology and Vascular Surgery fields, in an interactive learning process, including main debates and live cases transmission, topic correlated.
In 2015 we expand the number of clinical cases, the broadcasting and transmission facilities, and the National Faculty involved in the live cases, again inviting some of the European references to work with us, with their skilled experience and recognized expertise.
For the very first time the Symposium was granted with 12 CME European credits (ECMEC) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).
