Vascular and Endovascular Fellowship
The Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in patient care, teaching and research. We are committed to our responsibility to educate future vascular surgeons and therefore education is an integral part of our daily activity.
The Vascular Surgery Residency Training Program is an Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) two year program and currently accepts one new resident per year (total of two residents at any one time). Dr. Mohammad Eslami serves as the Program Director.
For over 30 years, the program has been providing trainees with a diverse and challenging clinical and surgical experience supported by innovative didactic and research opportunities. We are proud to maintain a healthy balance between open vascular surgery and endovascular therapy. This guarantees that our trainees, upon graduation, are competent open vascular surgeons. We have full access to state-of-the-art endovascular suites and have a robust endovascular practice.
Due to our unique and close relationship with the sections of interventional cardiology and radiology, our trainees have the opportunity to learn technical endovascular skills not only from vascular surgeons but also from other interventionalists, thus broadening their endovascular skill-set.
Since we are committed to the academic mission, we expect our trainees to participate in academic endeavors during the course of their training. At the beginning of the residency our trainees choose to pursue several clinical research projects and are expected to both present their results at vascular meetings and author several manuscripts. We believe that this experience serves our trainees extremely well regardless of whether or not they eventually choose a career in academic medicine.
We have a robust multidisciplinary academic calendar which includes case conferences, journal clubs, didactic sessions on topics of controversy in vascular surgery and vascular laboratory conferences. Our trainees are expected to actively participate and play a leadership role in these conferences.
