Teaching at Europe’s leading vascular symposium

I was delighted to be invited to participate in the Charing Cross (CX) Symposium on 8th April. The CX Symposium is Europe’s longest-running and leading vascular symposium and is regarded as a must-attend event for cardiac professionals.

The event is a highly prestigious one, having been established over 35 years, attracting thousands of vascular specialists to the capital.

I was asked to teach mechanochemical ablation with particular focus on familiarising delegates with the Clarivein technique.

Having successfully treated over 200 patients with Clarivein since late 2010, I was delighted to share my knowledge with an enthusiastic audience of mixed backgrounds – from professors to novices.

I strongly believe teaching is an important part of medicine, something I greatly enjoy, and the hallmark of the CX Office Based Veins Course is its flexible small group, one-on-one teaching, rather than traditional lectures.
