CHICAGO – The Society for Vascular Surgery® presented the E. J. Wylie Traveling Fellowship to James H. Black, III, MD, of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine during the Vascular Annual Meeting® held June 6-8, 2012 in National Harbor, Maryland.
Dr. Black is the Betram M. Bernheim, MD, Associate Professor of Surgery, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Dr. Black plans to use the award to view three vascular centers:
• San Matteo Hospital in Pavia, Italy, to see their developments in Marfan Syndrome
• Ghent University Hospital in Ghent, Belgium, to see their development of Loese-Dietz Syndrome
• Hospital European Georges Pompidou in Paris, France, to see their developments in vascular endothelial dysfunction (VEDS).
The $12,000 award provides financial assistance for a Society for Vascular Surgery fellow to travel domestically and internationally to established vascular centers to share professional expertise. The exchange of information can stimulate academic inspiration, promote international exchange, and foster development of fraternal fellowship in vascular surgery. These objectives enhance the development of the fellow’s career in vascular surgery.
