POLISH SOCIETY of PHLEBOLGY – INFORMATION ABOUT THE SOCIETY
Polish Society of Phlebology (primary named Phlebological Society) was founded 25 years ago (1991) by dr Tomasz Drążkiewicz (honorary President Founder of the Society) and Co – Founders.

During 25 years of the activity many scientific and educative events in the field of phlebology were organized as the local and international meetings. During all the years of the activity of the Society and Society Members a significant progress in phlebology was stimulated, leading to the development of phlebology as a recognisable medical discipline.
Currently, one of the main goals of the Polish Society is a continuous education of their members as well other physicians and medical staff interested in the problems related to the vein and lymphatic system disease. Another important goal is an active stimulation of the research projects as well as the support in their performance. The number of courses dedicated to various phlebological procedures was also introduced and organized in the Society and dedicated to education of the Society Member.
Being the member of an International Union of Phlebology and actively cooperating with other Scientific Societies, Polish Society of Phlebology promotes the standards of care in phlebology by taking simultaneously care of an increase of scientific and professional level of the Society and its Members. The Members of the Society are involved in many domestic and international scientific and educative projects.
