The PA Section is open to physician assistants who’ve demonstrated an active interest in the field of vascular surgery. It’s intended to provide a professional home to all PAs working in vascular care settings. Since its inception, 138 PAs have joined the SVS as affiliate members – you could be next. March 1 is the first of four deadlines to apply for membership in 2019. Affiliate member benefits include PA-specific education at VAM, networking and peer mentoring opportunities, discounts on SVS events, a subscription to the Vascular Specialist newspaper and more..
