Position Statement on Competencies for Endovascular Specialists Providing CLTI Care

Position Statement Training

This statement was endorsed by the American College of Radiology (ACR), American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA), Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR), Society for Vascular Medicine (SVM), Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS), Society for Clinical Vascular Surgery (SCVS), and Vascular & Endovascular Surgery Society (VESS) in September 2021.

Authored by a multispecialty societal writing group, this statement outlines competencies for endovascular specialists providing CLTI care. Through dissemination and use by clinicians, training programs, and professional societies focused on CLTI, this effort may ultimately enhance the outcomes of this population in need. Although equally important, this document does not address the competencies necessary for optimal vascular surgical care of the patient with CLTI.
