The Master’s Degree in Angiology prepares cardiologists, vascular surgeons, internists, general practitioners and other specialists with an interest in the vascular field to execute the most specific examinations in this field, according to standardized procedures, based on clinical appropriateness and therapeutic indications.

The course treats the standardized global approach, appropriate for vascular patient‘s analysis, considering, in particular, the different diagnostic sectors with Doppler Ultrasound and non-invasive methods on supra aortic trunks, neck venous vessels, upper limb arterial and venous vessels, aorta and big abdominal vessels, and lower limb arterial and venous vessels.

The Master’s Course provides attendees with a high-level preparation in the Medical Angiology field, since it supplies theoretical and practical tools that make professionals independent in using Doppler Ultrasound diagnostic methods, and in the different artery and venous study sectors; moreover, it provides indications for the acceptance, therapeutic approach and follow-up phases.

The Master’s Degree in Angiology is held in partnership with the Padua Hospital, the UOC of Angiology, the UOC of Cardiology, and the UOC of Vascular Surgery.

The course units of the Master’s Degree in Angiology lead attendees to acquire standardized procedures and appropriate applications of the Doppler Ultrasound and other non-invasive diagnostic methods, in patients suffering from arterial and venous-lymphatic vascular conditions.

Some of the most relevant topics include:

  • Diagnostic study sectors with Doppler Ultrasound
  • Non-invasive methods on supra aortic trunks, neck venous vessels, upper limb arterial and venous vessels, aorta and big abdominal vessels, and lower limb arterial and venous vessels.

Preparation is done through an understanding of pathophysiology, with a global approach to vascular diseases.

The Master’s Degree in Angiology is aimed at cardiologists, vascular surgeons, internists, general practitioners and other specialists with an interest in the vascular field.

Career opportunities include all those fields where expertise in the clinical-instrumental execution with Doppler Ultrasound is required, in patients suffering from vascular pathologies; moreover, attendees will acquire the ability to provide a diagnostic evaluation with a therapeutic approach to patients with arterial and/or venous and/or lymphatic vascular disease.

Therefore, the course also helps to improve interaction skills with Local Doctors, First-Aid Units, Vascular Surgeons, Cardiologists and Internists, through a global approach to vascular patients and by managing the patient’s diagnostic-treatment path.

The Master’s Degree in Angiology provides training on:

  • Clinical-instrumental approach to vascular patients and in selecting and executing Doppler Ultrasound exams and other non-invasive instrumental diagnostic exams, as well as how to manage the follow-up.
  • A correct and standardized clinical-instrumental and/or non-invasive multi-instrumental approach for prevention, diagnostic and medical treatment purposes of vascular diseases, including possible surgical indications.
  • Standardized and independent execution of Doppler Ultrasound exams in the different sectors for patients suffering from vascular diseases, as well as the critical application of international guidelines, trials and practices.

Attendees will acquire theoretical-practical competencies on the use of the Doppler Ultrasound in the different vascular disease study sectors, through a standardized approach aimed at selecting the quali-quantitative measures in its application, and any medical and/or surgical treatment indications, through constant tutoring.

L’Arte nelle Vene” is a listening journey that combines art and medicine to learn more about chronic venous disease.

The Director of the Master’s Degree in Angiology and Director of the Angiology Department at the University of Padua Hospital, Prof. Giampiero Avruscio with Alessandro Cecchi Paone retrace in four podcasts the main historical moments related to chronic venous disease.

The course will start on November 2022 and will comprise a theoretical part (with video-lessons made available on the Moodle platform and in asynchronous mode), and a 250-hour traineeship part.

Concerning the theoretical part, the video-lessons will be loaded on the Angiology Master’s Moodle space, according to the lesson calendar (there may also be live/synchronous lessons on the Zoom platform, whose dates will be notified in advanced).

The 250-hour traineeship will start in December 2022 and will be organized based on the attendees’ availability (before September 2023) and on the schedule of the Padua Hospital’s UOC of Angiology.

Guided by a tutor, attendees will follow the clinical-diagnostic course of a patient (or suspected patient) suffering from vascular disease, from their medical history to the execution of the Doppler Ultrasound, to their “take-over” and follow-up.

Yes, every attendee will choose a topic they want to elaborate on, and will draft a final Master’s research paper individually, with the help of an advisor professor identified by the University Department. The research paper will be presented in September 2023, before a Committee.
