More than two dozen participants from across the East Coast gathered for three days of learning at the Big Apple Bootcamp, held September 7-9 in the Skills Acquisition & Innovation Lab (SAIL). Presented by the Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine, the program was designed to give participants the knowledge and technical skills needed to be successful vascular fellows or residents.
Sessions included open simulation using both cadavers and models, endovascular simulation using multiple different platfoms, planning workshops, arterial closure workshops and hands-on device deployment.
More than 20 vascular surgeons contributed to the successful event by serving as proctors. Course directors were Dr. Darren B. Schneider, chief of the Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, and Dr. Sharif H. Ellozy, associate professor of clinical surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine.
