Midwestern Vascular Surgical Society Programs for Fellows/Residents and Medical Students
The Midwestern Vascular Surgical Society is pleased to announce the 10th Annual Mock Oral Examination to be held Thursday, September 9, 2021. We urge you to avail this opportunity for your Vascular Surgery Trainees.
The Society will be offering its Mock Orals program in a virtual format from 8:00 AM – 12:30 PM prior to the start of Midwestern Vascular 2021, the Society’s Hybrid 45th Annual Meeting to be held in Chicago.
This is the 10th year that the MVSS will host the Mock Orals Exam for Senior Vascular Fellows and Residents. The Mock Oral Exam provides trainees from across the Midwest an opportunity to experience familiarity with the certifying exam format, gain experience with examiners from outside their training program and receive constructive feedback from examiners to improve their exam-taking skills. Our goal is to provide the Mock Oral Exam to 20 trainees through our Zoom platform.
- There is limited availability of 20 spots on a first come first serve basis, with priority given to those in their final year of training (i.e. PGY 7 fellowship or 5th year of integrated vascular surgery residency), and to those who have not done the program in the past. Other fellows or residents will be accepted if space allows.
- Contact information for the Program Director will be required at the time of registration. Participation in the program will also require a refundable deposit of $100.00. Failure to attend, or if the Fellow withdraws from participation after July 15, 2021, the deposit will be forfeited. Deposits will be refunded following conclusion of the program.
- The Registration Deadline is Monday, June 28, 2021. However, registration is encouraged early as this program will fill up very quickly and prior to the deadline.

The Midwestern Vascular Surgical Society is pleased to announce the 2021 Virtual Medical Student Education Program, “Introduction to Vascular Surgery” to be held on Tuesday, September 7, 2021.
During the past six years of the course, the Society has attracted over 150 medical students from 25 different Midwestern Medical Schools who were interested in learning more about the specialty of Vascular Surgery.
The primary goal of this program is to introduce the specialty of Vascular Surgery as a career choice to medical students from the Midwest region. The program provides a unique opportunity for medical students at all levels to interact with members and leaders of the Midwestern Vascular Surgical Society (MVSS). Vascular Surgery faculty and trainees participating in the program have a particular interest in medical student education and mentorship.
Program content will be delivered virtually. Plans are being made to provide virtual simulation sessions with ‘live’ proctoring of skills.
