Thank you for your interest in the SCVS Top Gun Program. This exciting competition, which includes a reception during the final round, provides an opportunity for young surgeons to fine-tune their surgical skills in a safe, simulated environment. The program will take place as part of the SCVS Annual Symposium, which will be held March 14-18, 2020, at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach in Huntington Beach, California.
The preliminary rounds of the competition will be held on Monday, March 16th from 9:00 am - 3:30 pm. The Top Gun Final Round will include winners from the Preliminary Round and be held on Monday evening from 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm.
Admission to the SCVS Top Gun Program will include complimentary meeting registration to attend the 2020 SCVS Annual Symposium (including all social functions).
ELIGIBILITY & SELECTION
The program is open to vascular fellows and vascular integrated residents. Interested fellows and residents must provide their full contact information. In 2020, the program is open to a maximum of 40 participants. Admission to the program will be based on completeness of application and order received. Priority will be given to represent as many different programs as possible, so it is likely there will not be two Fellows accepted from the same program. Fellows and/or Residents selected for the program will be notified via email.
