Honorary Membership


Honorary membership may be granted to distinguished physicians who have achieved international prominence in medicine, and who have contributed to the advancement of the vascular field. 

Honorary members are proposed by the Fellows Council and elected by a majority of the members present and voting at the SVS Annual Business Meeting in June. 

Honorary members enjoy the full benefits and privileges of membership except that they cannot vote on Society business, hold elected office, or serve as members of the Councils or the Board of Directors.
