Sub-Section on Outpatient & Office Vascular Care (SOOVC)


In 2019, the SVS created a new membership section for clinicians who work in outpatient and office vascular care centers. The section’s mission is to establish a forum where members can work to advance the care of patients with vascular disease in outpatient settings by enhancing SVS efforts in education, advocacy, quality practice, ethics and research. Since its start, the section has grown to more than 130 members. It is now a sub-section of the SVS Community Practice Section (SVSCPS).  


SVS SOOVC membership is available to all SVS members in good-standing who are interested in outpatient and office vascular care. Hospital/practice administrators are also welcome to join as Affiliate members.
