This is an interdisciplinary congress and is designed to provide a comprehensive educational experiences that encompasses the pathophysiology, clinical diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases as they are encountered by primary care physicians, vascular, general, thoracic, cardiothoracic and cardiovascular surgeons, neurosurgeons, cardiologists, internists and cardiology and vascular interventional radiologists, as well as allied healthcare personnel, i.e., RN’s, PA’s, NP’s, RVT’s and other Allied Medical Sciences.

PHYSICIANS-IN-TRAINING, PhD STUDENTS, PA’S and NURSES—ABSTRACTS, INTERESTING CASES AND POSTER PRESENTATION SUBMISSION:  Trainees, interns, RN’s, PA’s and NP’s are invited to showcase your most interesting and challenging cases for educational purposes during our annual meeting.  We are particularly interested in complex interventional and surgical cases that fall into the following categories: • SFA • Limb Salvage • Venous • TEVAR • EVAR • Renal • Carotid • Coronary • Endovascular • Valve & Structural • Imaging • Heart Failure • Women in Cardiology and Heart Disease in Women • Preventative Medicine • Cardiovascular Interventions • AI in the Treatment of Complications of Endovascular Therapy, Vascular and Cardiac Surgery

Selection of cases for presentation―special emphasis is given to originality, innovation and creativity in diagnosis, therapy and management.  Abstracts will be presented in oral and poster format. The best 10 abstracts and interesting case presentations will be presented orally. 

A prize in the amount of USD $100 will be awarded for the best oral/poster presentation(s) by a trainee. In addition to a monetary prize, awardees will receive the remainder of the year’s membership as an Associate or Affiliate Member (whichever is applicable) for free.

ed Associate Membership for 3-years or Affiliate Membership at a reduced annual fee. After 3-years as an Associate Member, you would submit an updated CV for elevation to a “full member” which would provide for an opportunity to be nominated for a position in a leadership role in the ICA.


If you are a resident or fellow in a training program, consider applying for our Young Investigator Award Competition

The purpose of this competition is to encourage young physicians, research fellows and trainees to engage in high quality research, which forms the basis for future achievement in the pathophysiology of disease, diagnosis and treatment. The Scientific Committee will judge entries on originality, innovativeness, scientific merit, presentation, and relevance. The finalist will deliver a 15-minute oral presentation. The International College of Angiology reserves the right to publish the prize-winning manuscript in the International Journal of Angiology. The winner(s) will be given a cash award in the amount of USD $1000 and one-year Associate Membership in the International College of Angiology. Previous recipients of a Young Investigator Award will be ineligible.


  • Applicant’s academic rank cannot be higher than Associate Professor or Lecturer, and must not have held this position for more than 3 years.
  • The scientific work is mainly the result of the applicant’s effort.
  • Materials must be original, unpublished, and not previously presented.
  • Only one (1) submission per author will be considered. The candidate must be the sole or first author, and must be present at the Award Ceremony to receive the award.
