What is the YVS Program?

The EVS Young Vascular Surgeon Program is dedicated to vascular surgeons in the first 0-5 years of practice. The mission of the YVS program is to foster and accelerate the learning and career development of EVS Candidate members within their first years of clinical practice. The EVS, in conjunction with the YVS program, will achieve this mission by advocating for mentorships, scholarships and creating engaging and interactive forums virtually and in person at the Annual EVS meeting. Our Annual Meeting is designed to focus and enhance the efforts of the EVS community 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.
