Overall Goals

Aortovascular Summit 2016 is the third combined aortic and vascular therapy course hosted by NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center. This program represents a unique multidisciplinary collaboration between cardiologists, vascular, thoracic and cardiac surgeons, allowing for a truly comprehensive approach to the management of aortic and vascular disease. This premier two-day course will present the current state of the art in the diagnosis and management of patients with aortic, peripheral, arterial and venous disease. Our internationally recognized faculty will present lectures, video-recording, and case-based multidisciplinary discussions focused on the best current therapies to treat these complex disease states.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for primary care physicians, cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, vascular, thoracic, and cardiac surgeons, general surgeons, internists, intensivists, anesthesiologists, podiatrists, cardiac and vascular NP's and PA's, physical therapists and other medical professionals involved in the evaluation, diagnosis and/or management of patients with cardiovascular disease.
