Exclusive Offer for Physician Assistants

As an added-value benefit for PAs the SVS has approved the formation of an SVS PA Section. The SVS PA Section is a “professional home” for PAs working in vascular care settings. The SVS PA Section will be working to serve the vascular PA community by providing PA-specific education at the Vascular Annual Meeting, networking and peer mentoring opportunities, and leadership development through SVS committee engagement.

By completing the Affiliate application, and validating that you meet the membership criteria, you will be automatically enrolled as a member of the SVS PA Section. There are no additional dues, or fees to join the PA Section. Please complete your application by December 31, 2017 to participate in this exclusive offer!

Review process 

Completed applications will be reviewed regularly by the SVS Membership Committee, which will forward its recommendations to the SVS Executive Board for final approval. The estimated time for review and approval is 8-12 weeks from the time your completed application materials are received.

Any applicant who is not extended membership, will receive an explanation and invited to reapply. A new application must be submitted.
