  • VESS VSIG

Welcome to the VESS Vascular Surgery Interest Group

The VESS VSIG Goals are as follows:

  • Provide a yearlong forum for vascular committed and vascular interested students from across the country to participate in. This will allow students at institutions with no VSIGs or inactive VSIGs to get continued vascular exposure and mentorship.
  • Provide networking opportunities between students and the VESS members.
  • Give opportunities for motivated students to take leadership roles and ownership of the VESS VSIG. Giving students a sense of ownership of the VESS VSIG will translate to increased involvement of students with our society. This can lead to continued involvement as residents and ultimately junior faculty.
  • Provide a forum for existing VSIGs to network with each other. VSIGs can become members of the VESS VSIG (almost like chapters) and participate in all VESS VSIG activities.
