The 2023 Conference theme is "CONNECTED".  

For 53 years, the Western Angiographic & Interventional Society’s mission has been to facilitate advancements in the field of IR through a quality continuing medical education conference.  This objective is achieved in a general session format that connects faculty, attendees and industry representatives through interactive discussions and shared experiences.  The 2023 program is focused on connecting attendees across geographies and platforms to discuss cutting-edge therapies, practice development, M&M case presentations (lessons learned), social media, technology, clinician wellness, as well as successes and challenges for IR programs globally.

Additionally, the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) now encourages CME professionals to include education and activities that address clinician burnout.  In 2021, WAIS began incorporating wellness presentations and group activities into our conference program.  This year, WAIS will continue to address this important challenge as we strive to create a culture of mutual care with education and revitalization programs for our Interventional Radiology community.

The full program will be posted in March. Meanwhile, you can view the Program-at-a-glance by clicking the button (left).
