We encourage you to invest early in yourself and your career by joining the Vascular & Endovascular Surgery Society (VESS). The Society boasts over 1000 Active & Candidate members who stand committed to the development of early career, fellowship-trained vascular surgeons.
VESS hosts two national meetings, the Annual Spring Meeting and the Annual Winter Meeting. The Spring Meeting is held the day before the Vascular Annual Meeting (VAM) every year, underscoring a concerted commitment by both VESS and the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) to positively impact the professional and personal development of the early career vascular surgeon. The Winter Meeting, VESS’s official annual meeting, is held at a family friendly ski resort attracting those hoping to leave first tracks at the podium and on the peaks.
Our meetings foster an encouraging, collaborative environment geared to early career vascular surgeons interested in sharing and benefiting from the exchange of ideas based in basic/translational science, educational, clinical or health outcomes research. We encourage you to cement your work with submissions to Journal of Vascular Surgery and Annals of Vascular Surgery, our official publication partners for the Spring and Winter Meetings, respectively.

We are dedicated to our mission of improving the quality and safety of vascular surgical care through education, scholarship, advocacy and leadership.
