Society for Clinical Vascular Surgery
Mission Statement of the SCVS


The Society for Clinical Vascular Surgery is composed of surgeons who are actively involved in the clinical practice of vascular surgery.  As stated in its Constitution and highlighted by its mission, "the purpose of the Society is to advance the art and science of vascular surgery; to provide a forum for vascular surgeons, and to improve the delivery of health care in vascular disease."

The Society routinely achieves its mission to its membership through relevant continuing medical education provided by an Annual Symposium.  While interested in research and the development of socio-economic issues, the Society is particularly committed to fostering educational programs appropriate for the practicing vascular surgeon.

The CME mission of the Society is to provide a forum for the dissemination and discussion of the most current scientific and technical information related to the clinical practice of vascular surgery.  This forum is open to the membership of the Society for Clinical Vascular Surgery and the practicing surgeon committed to providing optimal care to patients with vascular disease.
