The Young Surgeons Section of the SVS with Dr. Chelsea Dorsey and Dr. Leigh Ann O’Banion
In 2021, the SVS approved a membership section dedicated to vascular surgeons in the first 0-10 years of practice. The mission of the Young Surgeons Section (YSS) of the SVS is to foster and accelerate the learning and career development of SVS members within their first ten years in clinical practice. We are excited to have Dr. Chelsea Dorsey and Dr. Leigh Ann O’Banion to discuss the evolution of the YSS, their plans for the upcoming VAM, and how people can get involved.
Dr. Chelsea Dorsey (@MdDorsey) is an Associate Professor of Surgery in the Section of Vascular Surgery at the University of Chicago and serves as the Vice Chair of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Department of Surgery.
