Online Phlebology Education Modules

The UIP is proud and excited to introduce online phlebology educational modules to improve and standardize education and training in phlebology across the globe. The education modules are designed to provide a basic and standardized understanding of various aspects of phlebology. The modules will provide a structured and focused learning system to better prepare the trainees for fellowship or similar examinations in venous disease.

The online module system was developed as part of the Australasian College of Phlebology (ACP) training program under the auspices of the UIP. Each module covers a topic that is managed by an instructor who is a phlebologist. There is a total of 70 modules divided into:

Basic 18 modules
Advanced One 16 modules
Advanced Two 16 modules
Fellowship 20 modules

The online phlebology education modules will be available from the 1 February 2019.
