The vascular medicine & surgery for undergraduate medical students series

This 9-part webinar series has the primary outcome of improving vascular surgery education within the undergraduate medical curriculum. The topics addressed in the series directly correlate with the GMC outcomes for graduates.


This series will run from April 2021 until January 2022 and will be broadcast monthly on a Monday from 6:00pm. 


All webinars in this series are available on-demand to registered delegates for up to 1 year after the live broadcast date.


The objectives of this series include:

  • The student should be able to recognise these diseases in their practice and formulate a plan of management. They should be able to judge if a referral to specialist attention is necessary and is able to reassure the patient.
  • Students will learn about the current prevalence of vascular diseases, the risk factors, and their manipulation and improving the outcome of treatment.
  • Students will be able to recognise the tale-tell signs of vascular diseases and will be able to perform a bedside test using hand-held Doppler.
  • Students will learn about the indication for various surgical intervention, reducing the risks associated with vascular diseases and rehabilitation of these patients with amputation and stroke.
