The West Coast Vein Forum was created as a unique educational opportunity for those with experience in treating venous disease. Rather than a comprehensive overview, the curriculum will focus on a variety of topics involving challenges and controversies that face the practicing vein specialist. Attendance is limited to 100 to allow for intimate interaction and networking with colleagues and faculty.  

Each session will include experts providing brief lectures on topics in venous treatment followed by extended time for panel discussion and audience participation.
