The clock is ticking to submit nominations for the 2022 Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) Excellence in Community Practice Award—with an extended deadline now set for March 31.
The honor is exclusively for those who practice in the community setting, including members in the office-based lab (OBL) setting. Nominations had originally been due by Feb. 1 (the accolade was previously called the Excellence in Community Service Award).
So what denote “excellence”? Past recipients have mentored students, brought vascular service to underserved areas and/or to patients’ homes, developed training or other educational programs, developed practice guidelines covering high-risk vascular patients, and been active in SVS or local and state vascular organizations
To be considered, applicants must be community practitioners and have been in practice as a vascular surgeon for at least 20 years; been an SVS member for at least five years; and show evidence of impact on vascular care or community health.
