EVC 2016: focus on learning by training!

Dearest colleague,

The 20th European Vascular Course was a great success! We welcomed 2145 participants from 50 different countries on March 6-8 in Maastricht, the Netherlands, and we enclose the statistics to illustrate were they all came from (Click here). One day earlier, the UEMS Section and Board of Vascular Surgery organized the European examinations for vascular surgery.

In the statistics you can also read the outcome of the questionnaire, expressing high rates for the content and organization of EVC. All delegates enjoyed the scientific lectures, numerous master classes, workshops and individual training sessions. We have offered three textbooks on arterial, venous and vascular access subjects and all manuscripts can be found on PubMed since they are published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery, Phlebology and the Journal of Vascular Access. In due time, all presentations and lectures will be online in our EVC Community. If you registered for EVC 2016 you have free access for one year. You can find the photo gallery here.

If you have a look at the age distribution of our participants it is clear that EVC is typically attractive for the trainees and younger vascular and endovascular surgeons. This also explains why all the master classes and workshops were fully booked. The difficult EVC quiz was correctly completed by 240 delegates and only 1 reached a 100% score. The winner is  Ahmed Asser and he wins the IPad.

The 21th EVC (March 5-7, 2017) will have even more master classes and workshops and the full spectrum of surgical and endovascular techniques will be offered  by means of lectures, life-like models, simulators and work stations. We will keep you informed and hope to welcome you at EVC in March 2017!

On behalf of all EVC co-directors,

Michael Jacobs
