Young Surgeons Section

About

In 2021, the SVS approved a membership section of the SVS dedicated to vascular surgeons in the first 0-10 years of practice. The mission of this Section is to foster and accelerate the learning and career development of SVS members within their first ten years in clinical practice. The Section will achieve this mission by establishing an engaging and interactive forum that will enhance SVS efforts in education, advocacy, quality practice, ethics, research, diversity/equity/inclusion, and member value, with specific focus and attention to the needs of members in the earlier stages of their careers.

Eligibility 

SVS YSS membership is available to any SVS Member in good standing that falls into the first 0-10 years of practice.
