Receive a Scholarship
The Florida Vascular Foundation is happy to continue its Next Generation program by providing $1,000 scholarships to medical students from the nine graduate programs across the state of Florida as well as select programs in Georgia and Alabama. All applicants must complete (1) the scholarship application, (2) an essay describing why the scholarship is important to their career goals, and (3) a phone interview with a member of the FVF selection committee. The scholarship is intended to support travel expenses and lodging to allow students to attend the Florida Vascular Society Scientific Sessions. Applications for 2017 are now closed and 2018 will be accepted in the fall of 2017.
Scholarship recipients may be asked to deliver a brief (5-minute) podium presentation focused on an interesting case, a particular clinical entity of interest, or an ongoing or completed research project. These presentations will take place during the meeting on Thursday, May 4, 2017 and do not need to be specific to vascular surgery, but will provide the student with an opportunity to present in a supportive, friendly environment. This will be the ideal setting to showcase your own work to both your peers and to potential mentors amongst the FVS membership.
Find an FVS Mentor
The Florida Vascular Society and its members take pride in our commitment to educating medical students with respect to all that the field of Vascular Surgery has to offer. To this end, students who take part in this program will have complete access to all of the FVS members in attendance with ample opportunity to interact both professionally and socially. This should create the ideal setting in which to identify a mentor vascular surgeon who will be able to help you with important career decisions and with navigating the path to a successful career in Vascular Surgery!
