Society for Vascular Medicine

The Society for Vascular Medicine (SVM) is proud to be a partner in the Choosing Wisely® campaign. The SVM is a nonprofit medical society comprised of physicians, surgeons, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and vascular interventionists. For nearly 25 years, one of the goals of the Society has been to maintain high standards of clinical vascular medicine. The Society believes that optimal vascular care is best accomplished by the collegial interaction of a community of vascular professionals working with the patient. The Society recognizes the importance of individuals with diverse backgrounds in achieving ideal standards of research and clinical practice. The SVM believes that partnerships between patients and health care providers are crucial to improving vascular health, achieving better outcomes and lowering health care costs. We are excited to participate in the Choosing Wisely campaign to encourage open communication about the costs and benefits of tests and treatments. We are committed to ensuring the most appropriate, cost-effective care.
