SVS Community Practice Section (SVSCPS)

A team of medical professionals wearing surgical gloves with the SVSCPS logo overlayed.


In 2021, the SVS created a new membership section for clinicians who work in the community. The Section’s mission is to establish an engaging and interactive forum for SVS members practicing primarily in a community setting. The Section will achieve this mission by enhancing SVS efforts in education, advocacy, quality practice, ethics, research, and member value, with specific focus and attention to the needs of members delivering vascular care in the community setting.


SVSCPS membership is available to all SVS members in good standing who are interested in serving patients in the community practice setting. Hospital/practice administrators are also welcome to join as Affiliate members.
