About Our Guidelines

Society for Vascular Surgery clinical practice guidelines evaluate the evidence in the scientific literature, assess the likely benefits and harms of a particular treatment, and enable healthcare providers to select the best care for a unique patient based on his or her preferences.

In addition to the SVS Foundation comprehensive research awards program, SVS maintains strong relationships with the National Institutes of Health (NIH)/National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and other government agencies involved in research. This page provides various resources available to explore a career in vascular disease research. 

This resource includes NIH T32 Research Training Grant programs, summer programs, and other opportunities for trainees and medical students interested in basic science research or clinical and translational research in vascular disease. 

The goals of the Society for Vascular Surgery® (SVS) Clinical Research Study Approval Program are to facilitate clinical research addressing important questions in vascular disease management and to maximize participation of SVS members in the conduct of this research. Clinical research studies meeting the criteria established by the SVS Research Council shall be eligible for recognition as an “SVS Approved Clinical Research Study Proposal” or "SVS Approved Clinical Research Study."

The SVS clinical research priorities have been defined by the Research Council to help guide allocation of resources to high priority areas. The Journal of Vascular Surgery​ publication of the final priorities listing and the meeting proceedings is available here.

The SVS Clinical Research Priorities are:

The Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) is focused on increasing the role of vascular surgery in clinical research trials, supporting the vascular surgery researcher, and encouraging research in critical areas of vascular disease.  

SVS Clinical Research Priorities

SVS has identified its top clinical research priorities to address critical gaps in knowledge guiding practitioners in prevention and treatment of vascular disease.
