The NYSVS holds two meetings annually.
This year's spring meeting took place at the Griffis Faculty Club at the Weill Cornell Medical College at 445 E. 69th Street (York Avenue) on May 20, 2015.
Dr. Frank Veith was the guest speaker. He spoke about the importance of critical evaluation and skepticism of scientific articles, including landmark articles published in prestigious journals. In particular, he was critical of conclusions drawn about both the CREST trial and the IMPROVE trial in the scientific literature. It was a stimulating talk followed by a discussion from the floor.
The Program was well attended with guests representing medical centers from around the NY metropolitan area. .
Vascular surgeons, vascular fellows and surgical residents are always invited to both our Spring and Fall meetings..
