SOCIETY FOR VASCULAR ULTRASOUND
The Society for Vascular Ultrasound (SVU) is conducting a search for a visionary medical society executive to increase the visibility and recognition of this vital, yet niche, specialty healthcare sector. Building upon its recent membership growth, SVU is poised to leverage the deep expertise of its member base to cultivate a “One Community” vascular hub of research and educational offerings for the broader ultrasound sector. This intentional expansion beyond SVU’s traditional focus on diagnostic vascular lab practitioners, is an acknowledgement of the shifting landscape within the vascular ultrasound sector including changes in sonography school academic standards, regulatory dynamics, disruptive technology and the resulting diminished recognition from multi-modality healthcare providers, employers and policymakers.
The new Executive Director will partner with the Board of Directors to spearhead innovative initiatives designed to expand its member base, leverage partnerships, increase its educational portfolio, and boost its advocacy efforts. Among the keys to its success will be elevating the recognition of its signature publication, the Journal for Vascular Ultrasound.
