Leadership Development Program Cohort 4

SVS, SCVS and VESS logos

The Leadership Development Program (LDP) is a six-month-long interactive learning experience for U.S./Canadian vascular surgeons who are five-10 years out of training. A series of webinars, mentoring and a 1.5-day in-person workshop will serve as the curriculum to guide participants as they identify and tackle real-life challenges faced by leaders in vascular surgery.   

The aim is for the participants to reach their full potential as leaders and make a positive impact in the specialty, in their workplace and community, and in other areas of importance in their life. 

Program content is drawn from the highest quality research on leadership with an intense focus on applying this knowledge to real-life challenges. 

The 2022-2023 application process is now closed. See a list of participants here.

Important Information about your CME credits for LDP Cohort 4

The American Board of Surgery (ABS) recently made changes to its CME processes, which impact the way that Diplomates interact with the Board, upload CME credits, and meet Certification requirements. SVS is committed to complying with the new rules and making your ability to claim credit as seamless as possible, however, we are still in the process of aligning our systems to meet these new requirements.   

To ensure all your CME credits earned with SVS are transferred to the ABS, please visit this website to review the process.
