New this year - we are offering Trainee Travel Scholarships to help Students, Residents, and Fellows attend the meeting. Scroll to the bottom of this page to learn more.
In 2018 we accepted 18 scientific abstracts for podium presentation and posters. Members and invited guests have presented original research and interesting cases to their colleagues in a collegial forum. An annual resident research competition and prize has accompanied the fall meeting.
Since its inception, the Society has enjoyed an exceptional relationship with our colleagues in both the medical device and pharmaceutical industries. Their support has permitted us to expand the quality and scope of our scientific programs to the point where they meet standards usually attributed to societies with national membership.
The Texas Society for Vascular and Endovascular Surgery has remained a comfortable forum which encourages the exchange of information and ideas among its members and guests for the purpose of improving the quality of vascular surgery care in our respective communities. It aims to allow surgeons and allied health professionals to remain current on the latest knowledge, approaches, and procedures that will lead to better patient care and to offer the latest information regarding the care of vascular and endovascular conditions. It also serves to acquaint members with the newest technologies and therapies which have been approved for use by our specialty.
This year, President William P. Shutze has invited renown endovascular surgeon and researcher Dr. Fred Weaver as the Honorary Guest Speaker. We have also added an all-new Trainee Program complete with a Vascular Simulation Skills Lab, Allied Health Multidisciplinary session, and a Diversity Panel. It will be a banner year for the Society not to be missed! Learn more about Dr. Weaver!
The meeting will draw primarily from the TSVES membership which are represented in the Texas and SW Region. The meeting also is open to non-member physicians, residents and fellows, students, RVT’s, Nurses and other Allied Health Professionals.
We hope you can join us this November 8 – 9th in Austin, TX.
