Vascular Surgery Interest Groups (V-SIG) promote vascular-related research and service activities to students earlier in their medical career, provide students with early exposure to surgery, and assist students as they seek valuable career mentorship.  View the list of groups registered with the Society for Vascular Surgery below to find a V-SIG near you!
