International Mentoring Program

The International Mentorship Program was developed by the International Relations Committee to provide experienced academic mentors from the Society of Vascular Surgery for International members outside the United States who do not have access to individuals who can assist them in professional growth.

Applications for Participation in the 2021 Program are Due on March 1st, 2021

The International Mentorship Program will provide mentors to international members to assist them in clinical research design, abstract submission, manuscript preparation, and scientific meeting presentations.

The program is for an initial period of one year; continuation beyond this time is dependent on scholarly productivity and the mutual desires of the mentor and mentee. The program will consist of internet based mentoring with live video conferencing between mentor and mentee.
