Participants will gain hands-on experience with open surgical dissection and reconstruction procedures on cadavers in our state-of-the-art surgical skills laboratory. The simulated operating rooms feature integrated audio-visual facilities to allow for real time and post-procedure feedback from expert faculty. There will be 2-3 participants per cadaver and each participant will spend the equivalent of a full day on this component of the course over the 2-day period.
The Vascular Ultrasound component will run over 4 sessions across the 2 days and each participant will rotate through the sessions where they will have the opportunity to scan peripheral veins, the aorta and the carotid artery on an actor patient and that there will be 1- on-1 supervision/direction by Vascular Physiologists.
Pre-course reading material will be provided.

- Abdominal Aorta
