Delivery of these short courses will be suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic and will not run in 2021. Please check back on the website for an update in early 2022.


The Vascular Surgery short courses consisting of General and Aortic Surgery and Peripheral and Venous Surgery are held at St Mary’s Campus in Paddington. The courses are designed to give people with an interest in General and Vascular Surgery the opportunity to study in-depth the latest developments related to vascular and endovascular surgery in an interactive format. 


General and Aortic Surgery will focus on vascular disease in general, as well as aortic pathology and treatments. Peripheral and Venous Surgery will focus on carotid disease, peripheral arterial and visceral artery treatments, and discuss venous disease in depth. New technologies in these areas will be a focus of discussion. Teaching will be delivered through an interactive format with emphasis placed on developing critical analysis, understanding key trials and debate of the big questions in vascular surgery and academic vivas.

Who are the courses aimed at

Both courses welcome surgeons in training in the NHS, healthcare practitioners and multidisciplinary support staff involved in the care and treatment of vascular surgery patients. 

Study options

Delegates can opt for one or both courses for the Certificate of Attendance or take the Academic Assessment, whereby attendees complete coursework and an essay assignment to receive an Imperial College Transcript of grades and ECTs.
