The Vascular Society of New Jersey is the state's preeminent professional association for vascular surgeons. The objectives of VSNJ are:
- to establish standards of proficiency
in the recognition and care of vascular disease;
- to promote adherence by the membership to these standards;
- to enhance and disseminate education in vascular disease
at the resident, post graduate and lay levels; and
- to encourage research in the etiology and modalities
of treatment of vascular disease.
The active membership consists of Board certified surgeons in the area who are currently practicing vascular surgery. Qualification for admission to the Society is dependent upon training, demonstrated skills, and adherence to ethical and moral standards as exemplified by members of the national vascular societies—International Cardiovascular Society (ICVS) and/or Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS). There are five categories of membership: Active, Senior, Honorary, Candidate and Associate.
VSNJ is front and center on significant legislative and regulatory issues, including licensure of vascular techs, licensure of ambulatory surgery centers, PIP and out of network reimbursement, and health insurance policy. VSNJ has the benefit of strong management and lobbying by the Advocacy and Management Group, led by Beverly Lynch and Lauren Myers. It provides timely monthly information to all members through the VSNJ Monthly Report, and the VSNJ website.
VSNJ also provides outstanding education, with nationally-recognized speakers at the Annual Spring meeting (traditionally in March), and the Fall membership meeting (October/November).
