Welcome to the Eastern Vascular Society

The Eastern Vascular Society (EVS) was founded in 1987 to:

  • enhance the ability to provide vascular care
  • to serve disparate communities through a commitment to diversity and inclusion
  • to promote diversity and inclusion within the Society, in vascular surgery education, training and research. 

Our objectives are to:

  • advance the art and science of vascular surgery
  • provide an educational forum for physicians in the Eastern United States and Canada active in the field of vascular diseases
  • improve the delivery to the public of healthcare for vascular diseases
  • encourage research in the etiology, diagnosis and treatment of vascular diseases

About 300 medical professionals attend our annual scientific meeting.  Our next Annual Meeting is September 24th - 27th, 2020 in Charleston, SC. We hope you will join us.
