Much has been made of the impending shortage of physicians in the United States with worrying predictions as soon as 2030. The driving force behind the overall shortage is a rising, aging population and upsurge of chronic disease such as diabetes and obesity. Not surprisingly, the vascular surgery specialty is predicted to suffer the greatest shortage.
The APDVS Recruitment of Medical Student and Residents Committee will present a free informational webinar, ‘VSIG Live!’ The intent of ‘VSIG Live!’ is to allow all U.S. medical students to experience a Vascular Surgery Interest Group meeting and learn more about Vascular Surgery, even in the absence of a local chapter.
The webinar will highlight:
- What is a Vascular Surgeon
- Options for vascular surgery training
- Interesting presentations from current trainees highlighting the diversity of vascular cases
- How to start a VSIG at your institution
We in the APDVS feel very strongly about the bright future of Vascular Surgery and are excited to reach our future partners and colleagues. We ask your help in making Vascular Recruiting Month March 2020 a huge success.
