SVS used Path LMS to build community during the pandemic by launching weekly town hall-style webcasts for members.
Society for Vascular Surgery
The Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) is a not-for-profit professional medical society composed primarily of vascular surgeons. SVS seeks to advance excellence and innovation in vascular health through education, advocacy, research, and public awareness. SVS is the national advocate for more than 6,200 specialty-trained vascular surgeons and other medical professionals who are dedicated to the prevention and cure of vascular disease.
SVS had been using Blue Sky eLearn solutions to occasionally host educational webinars; then, in January of 2020, they kicked off a leadership program that would provide a small group of monthly webinars, one in-person meeting, and a dedicated session at their annual meeting—all at no cost.
When COVID-19 hit, the leadership webinars were paused, and in-person events were canceled. SVS looked to Blue Sky eLearn for a solution.
Instead of holding in-person events, Blue Sky eLearn helped SVS pivot to holding weekly town hall webcasts using Path LMS™. The new virtual town hall format increased attendances from 65 to over 1,000 attendees while helping to build an increased sense of community among SVS members.
Moving to virtual meetings was a silver lining for SVS as it prompted them to begin planning their first ever virtual conference using Blue Sky eLearn and Path LMS.
