Welcome to the Third International Spring School on VTE 2017
Welcome to the website of the Third International Spring School on the Science and Practice of Venous Thromboembolism. The School is organised by the Center for Thrombosis and Hemostasis (CTH) at the University Medical Center Mainz, Germany, in collaboration with the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC), The Netherlands, and with the Democritus University of Thrace, Greece, as the local host.
The Third International Spring School will take place in Sithonia, Chalkidiki, Greece, from 9 to 14 May 2017.
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is not only the third most frequent cardiovascular disease, but also an exciting field in which translational research is currently being translated into major breakthroughs in clinical practice and improved patient outcomes. Based on your enthusiastic support and the feedback that we received from in 2013 and 2015, we have thoroughly revised and updated the 2017 programme to include the most relevant and contemporary scientific topics related to thrombosis and VTE. The programme of the Third Spring School will feature:
- State of the Art Clinical Seminars, as well as Moderated Poster Presentations in the morning sessions
- Breakout Workshops (parallel interactive practical sessions, from which the participants will be able to choose among a total of 12 offered workshops) in the afternoon sessions
- Keynote Lectures in the evening sessions
- Young Investigator Award and Networking Opportunities.
The purpose of the International VTE Spring School is to provide interested early career scientists and physicians across a broad spectrum of medical disciplines with a comprehensive overview of what is, at present, the state of the art in the rapidly evolving science and practice of acute venous thromboembolism and its chronic sequelae. The participants will have the opportunity to benefit from the School´s interactive seminars and workshops to be moderated by some of the most renowned experts and leaders in the field. Last but not least, the Spring School will offer a unique opportunity for networking, and for discussing future areas of research and collaboration projects.
We very much hope that you will join us for this exciting educational event in May 2017!
With very best regards
