The Annual Northwestern Vascular Symposium

symposium bookThe Annual Northwestern Vascular Symposium was the innovation of the legendary vascular surgeons, Dr. John J. Bergan and Dr. James S.T. Yao. The first symposium was held in December 1976, and has been held each December thereafter.
Originally, the program was designed around specific vascular topics. Today, the program consists of a comprehensive overview of the full spectrum of vascular surgery. The symposium unites 50 national vascular care experts each year. These experts produce a chapter on their respective topic that is included in a yearly textbook, and will present their topic during the conference.
Now in its 43rd year, the symposium continues its educational mission. On behalf of the division, we invite you to learn more about the program and how to register. We look forward to seeing you this December.
