Excellent meeting! I thought the leadership panel was particularly informative and would have loved more time for that section, specifically to to hear from division chiefs, chairs, and society executive counsel members about their experience.

Additional topics for next year – strategies for managing challenges facing female surgeons (eg microaggressions, mistreatment from other female surgeons, patient behavior, increasing operative referrals, negotiation, being spoken over at meetings)

I absolutely loved attending the WVS. It was inspiring to meet so many women accomplished in the field that I am so passionate about. I learned a lot! The only improvement that comes to mind is that there were a few technical difficulties that could be ironed out. Another idea I have as a medical student would be to have a mentorship program similar to what is done at EVS. Perhaps 2 or 3 students could be paired with a vascular surgeon with whom they can have a down to earth conversation facilitated by a few predesignated questions, or perhaps there could be a team-building exercise or mini-competition with a hands-on skills session with industry.

I will definitely treasure my experience at WVS, and cannot wait to attend again next year!!

This conference was extremely well run and refreshing on multiple levels.
The talks were of high quality with well researched content and knowledgable speakers.
The inclusive and collaborative atmosphere was unlike anything I have ever experienced at a conference before. It was truly inspiring to be amongst and to learn from and with women who have achieved so much in the field. I left the conference inspired and confident in the possibility of positive change within our speciality for both patients and clinicians in the future.

In terms of future advancement of the conference:
I really enjoyed the difficult case presentation and technical tips and tricks aspects presented in the venous session – I would love to see some more of that for other areas.
The content was, understandably quite heavy, perhaps a few more shorter breaks or some light interspersion, perhaps similar to the operative breaks we are encouraged to take would have been helpful.
I really enjoyed the aspect regarding mentorship. This might not work, but perhaps optional small more personal mentorship discussion sessions – i.e. residents mentoring students, attendings to residents/other attendings, or research/clinical/specific issue themed sessions might be welcomed.
Regarding the location – I loved the trip to Niagara falls and enjoyed Buffalo, and really appreciated the cost of the conference being low. I think sometimes it helps to move things around/encourages future attendance, but needs to be balanced with costs and accessibility.

Many thanks again for such an enjoyable and inspiring conference.

The hotel separate from the conference is not the best set up. Having everything in one venue is the best. Also it appeared that no one knew how to run the AV equipment, find a venue that does. Much time was wasted with this. The food at dinner at the Embassy Suites wasn’t good.
