2013 Vascular Surgery Simulation Summit (VS3)
Friday, March 22, 2013
Hotel Intercontinental – O’Hare
Rosemont, IL
The purpose of the program is to specifically address simulation training for all vascular surgery trainees in the U.S. This is the first time in the history of the APDVS that all program directors in Vascular Surgery will convene to discuss the status of simulation training in vascular surgery and plans for future development in this area of residency training. The program committee for this meeting has invited several national and international leaders in simulation training to speak at this event.

Goals and Objectives
1. Assess the national status of vascular surgical skills and simulation training
2. Evaluate quantitative methods in simulation technologies
3. Evaluate all currently available vascular surgical simulation technologies (surgical skills models and simulation training devices)
4. Discuss implementation of a national surgical skills and simulation training curriculum
5. Develop a collective multicenter vascular surgery surgical skills and simulation  research consortium to advance and shorten the time required for proper validation of vascular surgery surgical skills and simulation training curricula
6. Provide a forum for vascular simulation scientific presentations
