Social Media Ambassador

Social Media Ambassador Program

At the beginning of 2019, the Society for Vascular Surgery launched the Social Media Ambassador Program.

The program provides an opportunity for vascular-focused medical students, general surgery residents and trainees to become involved within the society and to expand their presence in the vascular surgery community on social media. 

The 2023-24 program application period is now closed.
