Objectives: Calls to carry efforts to increase awareness about venous thromboembolism (VTE) as a preventable major healthcare problem with serious consequences has been upraised. This study was planned to get an overview of the awareness, knowledge, and attitude toward VTE among Aseer population, Saudi Arabia and the need for an education plan. Materials and Methods: Questionnaire composed of 35 questions based cross-sectional study was conducted online via Google documents to public in Aseer that included both genders aged more than 18 years who agreed to be involved in the study, to assess knowledge and attitude toward VTE. The collected data were presented as numbers, percentages, and were analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences version 24. Results: The results of the data showed that awareness knowledge and attitude toward VTE were lacking and unsatisfactory. Conclusion: Diligence to spread knowledge and awareness of VTE among public in Aseer is required. Further surveys involving other populations are warranted.
