• Virtual Happy Hour

Wednesday, November 9th 7:30pm EST

The VESS would like to invite the Candidate and New Active Members to participate in a VIRTUAL HAPPY HOUR focusing on topics pertinent to early career vascular surgeons.

Please save the date and plan to join us for a discussion to learn about the keys to success as well as some of the pitfalls that early career vascular surgeons face. Use this unique opportunity to reach out and talk with those who have worked through the ups and downs of the first few years of practice as they help you learn from their experiences. Panelists include surgeons ranging from early to mid-late career who practice across a wide range of practice environments.

Join our panel of vascular surgeons from the Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Society (VESS).
