The Residents & Fellows Experience

The 14th annual Amputation Prevention Symposium (AMP), taking place August 14–17, 2024, fills a crucial need as the nation’s leading medical conference solely dedicated to the treatment and prevention of critical limb ischemia (CLI) and amputations related to CLI. 

AMP looks forward to granting scholarships to fellows enrolled in accredited vascular surgery, cardiology/interventional cardiology, and interventional radiology fellowship and residency programs. This scholarship helps to defray the cost of travel and registration fees for participation in the 2024 AMP Symposium.

  • Complimentary tuition* for the 2024 AMP Symposium (including access to all events Tuesday (Pre-Conference) and Wednesday–Saturday (Conference), including the workshops)  
  • Travel stipend ($750) to be used toward travel expenses incurred to attend the meeting.  This stipend will be distributed 2 weeks after the conference pending completion of all required tasks.

*Valid on new registrations only.
