The History, Features, Mission, Philosophy/Character And Future Vision Of The VEITH symposium
HISTORY AND DEVELOPMENT
The VEITHsymposium (Vs) grew out of a small meeting started in the early 1970s by Henry Haimovici. The early meetings, which were held in the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, were sponsored by Montefiore Medical Center. The meeting had a 2-page program, 10-15 Faculty members and attracted less than 100 attendees.
After the first three meetings, Frank J. Veith succeeded Dr. Haimovici as Chief of Vascular Surgery at Montefiore and Albert Einstein College of Medicine and became the Chairman of the meeting. Over the next 4 decades, as vascular surgery grew and matured as a specialty, the meeting has grown in size, scope and international flavor. It now attracts about 5,000 attendees, has about 600 faculty members and its program fills 128 pages.
FEATURES, PHILOSOPHY/CHARACTER AND MISSION OF VEITHsymposium
One asset of our meeting is its location in New York City, an easy place to get to from all parts of the world. This has contributed greatly to the large numbers of out-of-US faculty and attendees.
These out-of-US participants in turn keep US attendees and faculty apprised of the advantages and results of newer technologies, the use of which is sometimes restricted or delayed in the US because of stricter FDA requirements to demonstrate safety and effectiveness.
VISION FOR THE FUTURE
Our intention is to have our meeting continue indefinitely. We aim to keep what is good about it and add components and ideas to make it better. We want to increase its value to all vascular specialists and to our vascular industry partners. So we welcome suggestions from all. Location: The meeting will continue to be held in New York City (NYC), a unique place with many advantages as stated above.
