This year marks the 29th year the American College of Phlebology (ACP) will host what has become the largest and most comprehensive meeting dedicated to venous and lymphatic disorders in the U.S. Under the direction of Program Co-Chairs Lisa Pavone, MD, RVT and Melvin Rosenblatt, MD, FACPh, the scientific program will continue to set the pace for vein care with innovative and engaging content presented by respected faculty from around the world. The 2014 ACP Annual Congress, in Phoenix, Arizona, marked the largest and most successful Annual Congress hosted by the ACP to date. This year, the ACP is preparing for yet another exceptional educational meeting with the 2015 ACP Annual Congress, November 12-15 at the Hilton Bonnet Creek in Orlando, Florida.
“The 2015 committee is building on last year’s successful approach: allow for as much interaction with faculty as possible,” explained, Lisa Pavone. “Our aim has always been to provide attendees with the tools that they need to improve the standard of care in their practices.”
Focusing on that interactivity, program highlights include hands-on workshops in sclerotherapy, compression, non-thermal saphenous vein treatments and superficial venous imaging. In addition, special interest sessions and pre-Congress tracks allow attendees to target their personal educational goals with topics covering basic phlebology, ultrasound, practice management, aesthetics, and advanced phlebology and deep veins.
“The ACP Annual Congress stands apart from other venous symposia,” said Melvin Rosenblatt, “We have been careful to craft a program which addresses the wide breadth of topics for all specialties involved in vein care.”
In addition to the scientific sessions, the Annual Congress will also present sessions to help practitioners practice ethically, manage insurance challenges, understand the literature in venous disease, and learn about credentialing and accreditation.
Although the curriculum will be challenging, the three-day event will take place in sunny Orlando at the Hilton Bonnet Creek, a relaxing atmosphere for networking and engaging with colleagues. Social activities are planned throughout the Congress, including a Fun Run, Silent Auction, the ACP After-Party, and the ACP Foundation’s 9th Annual Golf Outing at the prestigious Waldorf Astoria Golf Club.
As the field of vein care continues to grow, so too does the need for educational offerings at all levels of skill. Attendees of the 2015 ACP Annual Congress will find sessions to meet their specific needs, from basic to advanced. Join the ACP November 12-15, 2015 in Orlando for this essential educational event.
