Vascular and Endovascular Fellowship
Education is integral to the mission of the Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, and we are committed to educating future vascular surgeons. For more than 30 years, the Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Fellowship, based at Boston Medical Center, has provided trainees with a diverse and challenging clinical and surgical experience, supported by innovative didactic and research opportunities. One resident is accepted each year into the two-year ACGME-accredited program.
The fellowship maintains a healthy balance between open vascular surgery and endovascular therapy, ensuring that upon graduation our trainees are competent in advanced endovascular techniques and complex open vascular surgery. In addition, at the beginning of the fellowship a research project is chosen, leading to presentations at vascular meetings and publications. The program is built on a robust multidisciplinary academic calendar that includes case conferences, journal clubs, didactic sessions on topics of controversy in vascular surgery, and vascular laboratory conferences. We believe that these experiences are essential to the development and practice of evidence-based vascular surgery, whether or not a career in academic medicine is ultimately pursued.
