The Southern Association for Vascular Surgery (SAVS) has put out a call for applications from medical students and general surgery residents for 20 travel scholarships now available to attend the 2024 SAVS annual meeting.
Applicants must be either a medical student in years 1–3 or a general surgery resident in PGY years 1–3 who are interested in vascular surgery and able to attend the meeting from Jan. 24-27 in Scottsdale, Arizona, the Society announced. Ten of the twenty scholarships are reserved for women and underrepresented minorities.
The scholarships are worth $1,000, with the application deadline Oct. 18.
Mock oral examinations designed to prepare candidate members and vascular fellows for the Vascular Qualifying Examination are again taking place at the meeting and set for Jan. 24. The application deadline is Nov. 1 at 11:59 p.m. (EDT).
The meeting will also play host once more to a Simulation Skills Competition. Admission will be based on order received, giving priority to represent as many different vascular training programs as possible, the Society stated. Each participant will perform a carotid patch, open aortic anastomosis and thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). The application deadline is Nov. 1, also at 11:59 PM (EDT).
