Student Membership in SVU
Why should you join SVU?
"Get involved and support SVU! We hope this is the beginning of a life-long voyage of continuing education to ensure your position as an expert in a field of vascular technology. Therapeutic vascular procedures may change, but ultrasound and Doppler continue to solidify its reputation as the most accurate, non-invasive and cost-effective technology available. Your job is to make sure you can understand, adapt and even develop new techniques to assist the clinician in making a vascular diagnosis. SVU will help educate you, connect you with colleagues to support and mentor you and provide you with a platform to deliver your ideas and discoveries."
