Michigan Vascular Society



The Michigan Vascular Society began in 1986 as the Detroit Vascular Society. 

As a developing sub specialty of general surgery, this group of young surgeons felt that is was necessary to meet quarterly in a nonthreatening collegiate environment to discuss issues common to all vascular surgeons.  Difficult clinical cases, governmental regulation, insurance reimbursement, and frivolous malpractice suits were addressed by the early members of the Society.

Thirty years later, the Michigan Vascular society still meets quarterly to foster the relationships, share insight, and overcome challenges of practicing in an ever evolving field.  Challenging case presentations, quality initiatives via the VQI, and most recently the administration of oral exams for our residents and fellows, represent some of the activities of the society that demonstrate the evolution the MVS has made and yet remained true to its founding principles.  

Michigan Vascular Society now celebrates its 32nd year!
