Target Audience

The target audience for the 2016 phlebology review course includes physicians experienced in caring for patients with venous problems as well as physicians who are new to the field and want a detailed presentation of the core curriculum of phlebology. Topics covered during the course will be emphasized based on the anticipated importance of these topics on the certification exam administered by the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine (ABVLM) in the spring of 2016. In addition to phlebologists, other specialists who treat venous disease will also benefit from the course, including vascular surgeons, general surgeons, family practitioners, interventional radiologists, obstetrician/gynecologists and other specialists in internal medicine.

Learning Objectives

As a result of this activity participants should be able to:

  1. Describe normal venous anatomy and nomenclature.
  2. Summarize normal and abnormal venous hemodynamics and the derangements associated with chronic venous insufficiency.
  3. Assess the performance and interpretation of necessary diagnostic exams including duplex ultrasound.
  4. Identify lymphatic anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology.
