The section of Vascular Surgery offers a two-year, Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-accredited fellowship leading to board certification in Vascular Surgery. One appointment is made each year; two fellows are in the program at any time.
The fellowship is organized so that interventional procedures, open surgery, inpatient/outpatient care, and vascular laboratory instruction are integrated throughout both years of the fellowship.
The Vascular Surgery Fellowship training program is dedicated to training fellows to become future leaders in the specialty of Vascular Surgery through a robust clinical and academic experience.
The primary aim of the Vascular Surgery Fellowship Program is to educate and train vascular fellows to capably and confidently practice all aspects of evidence-based vascular surgery independently in all clinical settings. In addition, the training program provides a robust academic training environment to foster a culture of inquiry in which fellows are exposed to and participate in surgical scholarship, quality improvement methodology, and research techniques (statistical analysis, clinical trial design, abstract, manuscript, and grant preparation).
Based on this comprehensive experience, we expect that our graduates will successfully obtain board certification from the American Board of Surgery and take on impactful professional roles within their respective vascular communities.
