A Unique Master

To  create culture and European qualifications in the field of Angiology/Vascular Medicine (synonyms) through its vast international collaboration:

– In 1991 the European Working Group was set up, which in 1998 became VAS: a No Profit – European Scientific Association. VAS unites the most qualified European Centres in the field of Angiology/Vascular Medicine aiming at independent research, training and motivating institutes and the general public.

-The VAS-European Teaching Panel of Lecturers is the didactic skeleton and forms a tight collaboration which has continued acquiring institutional recognition (UEMS, contracts with EuropeanUniversities and Scientific Societies).

-Researchers, clinicians and specialists also from other fields all collaborate in VAS’ training and research projects.

– Educational Projects have been set up, tightly integrated with clinics and  research  (also for the Master).

– The VII Edition of the Master was set up with strong collaboration and has been signed by a contract between the:

University of Milan,


and other 7 European Institutes;

Univerity of Wien (A),

Charles University of Prague (CZ),

Iuliu Hatieganu University, Cluj-Napoca(R),

Universitè Libre de Bruxelles (B),  

University of Lubiana (SL)

 Hungarian National Society (MAET)

 University of Zurich (CH)

with the aim of an agreement with other Universities and the aim to define of a common Diploma.

– Further 15 European Centres join those preceding for practical training (total 23 Centres).

– Enrolment to the MASTER means, therefore, entrance to a consolidated international Network, the possibility to attend one or more European Centres, take part in the drafting of a Cochrane Review and to a European Collaborative Research.

– European Master in Angiology Vascular Medicine is the only Master which permits access (see criteria) to the CESM-UEMS European Exam in Angiology/Vascular Medicine to obtain the CESMA-UEMS European Diploma in Angiology/Vascular Medicine and is also the briefest way to access

 Place where the course will be held.
