The SVS has a section dedicated solely to vascular physician assistants. All surgeons are encouraged to urge their PAs to join the section. This “professional home” for PAs has grown to 138 members in just one short year and more are always welcome. Benefits include PA-specific education at the Vascular Annual Meeting, leadership development, networking and mentoring opportunities, discounts on SVS events and our JVS subscription and more. Membership applications are processes quarterly. 2019 deadlines are March 1, June 1, Sep. 1 and Dec. 1.
