Welcome to the fourteenth monthly email of PERTinent Updates featuring a select group of articles for your review. We aim to inform and update our members with the most recent major developments in the fields of PERT/VTE so that we in the PERT Consortium can continue to be at the leading edge of improving care for this vulnerable and overlooked group of patients.

A special congratulations goes out to Dr. Elbadawi whose research on “The impact of a multi-specialty team for high-risk pulmonary embolism on resident and fellow education” was first presented as a poster at our 4th annual PERT Scientific Symposium. PERT is committed to encouraging and recognizing research from young faculty and trainees.
