Time is quickly running out for medical students and general surgery residents to apply for Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) travel scholarships to attend the 2022 Vascular Annual Meeting (VAM) in Boston this June.
“I wasn’t sure what I wanted to be when I grew up,” one vascular surgeon tweeted, encouraging students and residents to apply. “My mentor … helped me find the magical world of vascular surgery through grants such as the SVS VAM Travel scholarship, where I met surgeons who continue to inspire me. Take the leap!” she advised.
Applications are due March 9 for the SVS General Surgery Resident/Medical Student VAM Travel Scholarship and the SVS Diversity Medical Student VAM Travel Scholarship. Each provides not only a travel award to underwrite expenses to attend VAM, but also complimentary meeting registration, a mentorship program, mock interview practice session and a dedicated educational and networking program.
Diversity scholarship winners also will participate in the Meet the Leaders Luncheon with members of the SVS Leadership Development and Resident and Student Outreach committees and mentors.
Those who live in the Boston area will not receive the travel award portion of the scholarship. VAM 2022 will be held June 15 to 18 in Boston. Scholarship notifications will occur in mid-April. Learn more at vascular.org/VAMTravel1 and vascular.org/VAMTravelDiversity.
