Claire is the Australian and New Zealand Society of Vascular Surgery representative for UIP (Union International de Phlebologie) meeting. This is arguably the largest venous meeting in the world. It is held every 3 years and was last in Boston and prior to that, Monaco.

This February we are very fortunate to be hosting the UIP meeting in Melbourne. Claire has arranged a very exciting segment of inspiring speakers including Vascular Surgeons, Plastic Surgeons, Haematologists, Cardiologists and Anaesthetists. Please see the speakers and their topics below.
