Course Description

This one-day educational conference focuses on what is new and notable in interventional radiology. The conference will be separated into topic lecture sessions (in a rapid-fire format), and a best case/worst case session, where use of new and novel techniques will be featured in addition to morbidity/mortality. There will be a total of 6.5 hours of topic lectures and one hour of best case/worst case for a total of 7.5 hours of educational content.

This conference will allow a forum for the young physician-scientists in the field to talk about the "next generation" of IR. There is also a multidisciplinary session where we can learn valuable clinical skills from our colleagues in ICU, radiation oncology, urology, anesthesia, and Ob/Gyn. The involvement of junior attendings, IR fellows, and IR-interested residents will allow networking opportunities for job seekers, and research and clinical collaboration.

Immediately prior to the conference, there will be a one-hour medical student and resident session, including information on training in and succeeding in IR and what it’s like to be in IR practice. Breakfast, snacks, lunch, and refreshments will be provided at the meeting hotel, which is Shutters on the Beach Hotel. At the conclusion of the sessions, a dinner reception will be hosted at nearby restaurant, 41 Ocean.

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that nonpromotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program's participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.
