Dear Colleagues and Friends,
Welcome to the 6th European Spring School on Venous Thromboembolism!
This major bi-annual international event on the science and practice of venous thromboembolism (VTE) is organised jointly by the Center for Thrombosis and Hemostasis (CTH) at the University Medical Center Mainz, Germany, the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC), The Netherlands, and the Aristotle University Medical School, Thessalonica, Greece. The Spring School is endorsed by international and European scientific societies, and offers CME accreditation.
Exchange of knowledge, scientific and professional networking, and career support have been the quintessence of the European VTE School since 2013. As in the past years, we will have with us a distinguished faculty of international leaders in the field, together with a limited number of highly motivated early-career physicians and researchers.
Acute and chronic VTE is a field in which ongoing research continues to revolutionise clinical practice and improve patient outcomes. Based on the support and the feedback that we received from you in our past Spring Schools, we have taken every care to ensure that the programme of the 6th Euro Spring School 2023 will include the most relevant and contemporary scientific topics related to thrombosis and VTE, while promoting active interactions and scientific networking. The programme will feature:
- State of the Art interactive plenary sessions
- Moderated abstract presentations with Young Investigator Awards
- Case-based breakout workshops
- Hands-on skills and methodology tutorials
- Lunch and Learn sessions
- Numerous further networking opportunities.
Please take a moment to have a look at the School’s Preliminary Programme and Faculty. Detailed information regading the exact location, registration and abstract submission will follow soon.
We very much look forward to welcoming you in Greece next year! Please save the date: 10-14 May 2023.
With very best wishes
Stavros Konstantinides, Menno Huisman and George Giannakoulas
