To avoid a lapse in their benefits, Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) members are encouraged to pay their 2023 member dues by Dec. 31.
These benefits of SVS membership include access to the Journal of Vascular Surgery publications at reduced or no cost; the customizable SVS Branding Toolkit, discounts on education programs—including the Vascular Annual Meeting (VAM) and Coding and Reimbursement Workshop—as well as networking, practice management resources and more.
For 2023, the SVS has created the Early Active member category specifically for those vascular surgeons completing their training. Dues are lower, just $275 for the year, instead of the $695 fee for Active members, to help these new members transition to working life.
SVS also has simplified the application process for Early Active membership, dropping a formal application and any required letters of recommendation.
The 575 members who have finished training within the past three years have been notified that they have automatically become Early Active members.
Members will automatically transition to full Active status after achieving their Vascular Surgery Board (VSB) certification and a minimum of two years of Early Active membership.
