Recently Graduated Surgeons


Candidate membership is available to those graduated from a vascular training program who have not yet obtained their boards.  This membership level is available for up to four years post-graduation, at which time Candidate members must apply for Active membership. Candidate members may apply for Active membership at any time before the four years have expired.

Post-graduate Candidate membership dues are $74 a year, due December 31 starting the year after graduation.

How to apply

Candidate memberships are given automatically to anyone with a vascular surgery trainee candidate membership.  Anyone interested in SVS membership who was not enrolled as a trainee must apply directly for Active, International, Associate, or Affiliate membership.
