TSVES 2020 Annual Membership Drive
Texas is developing its Vascular Surgery voice, locally, regionally and nationally. We are actively seeking members from Texas and its environs who are seeking to promote, improve and accelerate the care of the vascular patient. The society provides a forum for scientific exchange, training, and recruitment
The Texas Society for Vascular and Endovascular Surgery (Texas Vascular) is the only society in Texas that represents Surgeons, physicians and Allied professionals involved in Vascular Surgery and vascular medicine, and actively collaborates with the SVN and SVU to bring scientific programs to the state. We also actively interact with podiatry and wound care specialists across the state to promote collaboration and care.
Texas Vascular holds a 2-day Annual Meeting every November in a rotating major Texas city. The meeting rotates between Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio and brings together surgeons, fellows, residents, students, Advanced Practice Providers, nurses, industry representatives, and technologists annually. Every meeting three prominent university or private practice groups develop and present pertinent topics for a post graduate course which provides insight into practice within the community. Important highlights of the meeting are Scientific Plenary Sessions, Research Sessions and Case reports. There is a Resident and Student competition to foster interest in research and innovation
Texas Vascular invites prominent vascular surgeons nationally and regionally to present the honorary Rutherford and the (all new) Buckley Lectures at the meeting. The meeting also incorporates an Ethics lecture to satisfy the TMB annual requirement. Over the two-day seminar, attendees can participate in simulation and training with industry, Mock Oral Exams for trainees preparing for their Oral Boards, recruitment and education of medical student and residents seeking training positions and promotion of diversity through an Issues Forum and Vascular Trainee Symposium.
Texas Vascular actively collaborates with SOVONET, the regional VQI affiliate and the Fall meeting occurs during our Annual meeting, The society also organizes the Texas Vascular Research Collaborative to research and collectively report state-wide outcomes in clinical practice.
We ask you to consider supporting Texas Vascular by becoming a member contributing to the meeting and encouraging your colleagues and trainees to join and be active in one of the largest statewide societies in the nation. The application process is very simple and you may access the application via our website.
