2020 Program Feedback

In 2019-2020, the SVS and the SVS Leadership Development Committee launched the inaugural LDP in collaboration with the Society for Clinical Vascular Surgery and the Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Society.

“The SVS Leadership Development Program has helped me to re-focus my goals as I enter the second stage of my career. The opportunity to hear from leaders within our small specialty who have had success at an institutional level gives me hope for the changes I would like to make in my current work environment. More than anything, though, it is the camaraderie and relationships renewed and developed that have re-invigorated my outlook for the future.” - Benjamin J. Pearce, MD

A diverse cohort of 25 vascular surgeons was selected to participate, and despite COVID-19 delaying the program and forcing a move to a fully virtual environment, early evaluations indicate that it’s been an impactful learning experience.
