At the ISSVD XIX World Congress in July 2007, a decision was made to broaden the criteria for joining the society. There are now two ways to participate in the Society. You can now join the ISSVD as a Member at anytime and change to Fellow status by presenting an abstract at a World Congress. Both categories are restricted to healthcare professionals. To become a Fellow * or Member, you must have displayed a particular interest in and knowledge of vulvovaginal diseases.
Members have the following benefits:
Fellows have the following benefits:
*Incomplete applications will not be activated and fee forfeited. (Please submit membership materials within 30 days of payment)
*Members may present at a World Congress but it is not necessary.
ISSVD offers a limited number of residents/medical student memberships at no cost. This membership is a great opportunity for those residents/medical students with an interest in vulvovaginal disease to have the opportunity to network and learn from the world's leading experts in the field. It also allows you to attend ISSVD educational programs at a signficant discount. This membership does not include the right to vote, hold office and does not include a subscription to the Journal. Send a CV and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org (3 year maximum)
*All Fellowship presentations are at the discretion of the Fellowship Approval Committee
*The next Fellowship opportunity will be in 2024.
