Author information

Service de Chirurgie Vasculaire, Hôpital Henri Mondor, Créteil, France.


The French College of Vascular Surgeons serves several functions including the organization of vascular surgery training nationwide, overseeing the practical aspects of institutional training, providing motivation for trainees by creating final exams, and bringing surgeons together to update their knowledge. This article details the results of their programs, the demographic changes in vascular surgical practice over the last ten years, and the problems to be solved in the near future. These challenges include: maintenance of autonomy in the surgical world, enlargement of the fields of action, clarification of indications for vascular procedures, demographic control, and recognition of training programs on the wider, European level.
