The Anticoagulation Forum is pleased to announce its next upcoming Anticoagulation Boot Camp. This compact 2-day meeting provides a comprehensive curriculum that covers the essential aspects of anticoagulation, disease state, and drug management. Engaging discussion around quality improvement, new agents and special situations will benefit all practitioners and daily “chalk talks” will allow for attendee participation to shape the topics. World Thrombosis Day 2017 will also be featured as part of the program.

The model will have a limited enrollment in order to provide ample time for Q&A and personal interaction with our expert faculty. All past programs have sold out and we anticipate strong interest as we offer this program regionally.

Thrombosis, also known as blood clots, is the formation of potentially deadly blood clots in the artery (arterial thrombosis) or vein (venous thrombosis). Once formed, a clot can slow or block normal blood flow, and even break loose and travel to an organ. A clot that travels to the circulation is called an embolism. Thrombosis is the often preventable underlying pathology of heart attack, thromboembolic stroke, and venous thromboembolism (VTE), the top three cardiovascular killers
