Vascular Surgery Residency
The integrated Vascular Surgery Residency program at Dartmouth-Hitchcock provides graduated, incremental training in both vascular and endovascular surgery. Trainees will also complete core requirements in general surgery.
This primary certificate program begins immediately after medical school and leads to certification in vascular surgery (but not general surgery) by the American Board of Surgery.
There is a single categorical five-year position available each year. There is an additional dedicated academic year to pursue health services/outcomes research and earn a masters degree at the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice (TDI). Additional opportunities to pursue basic science/bench research in vascular biology are available for those trainees so inclined.
The Section of Vascular Surgery also offers a two-year Vascular Surgery Fellowship for residents who have completed general surgery training.
Nine board-certified vascular surgeons staff a dedicated vascular service at this 400-bed tertiary care facility.
