The vascular surgery service
As our fellowship evolves to follow the changing paradigms in vascular education, we have maintained a high quality depth and breadth of experience for our general surgery residents, and the vascular surgery rotation remains a favorite among the residents. The service consists of a second-year fellow, a first-year fellow, a fourth-year chief resident, a junior resident and one to three interns, as well as medical students.
Most clinical activity occurs in the Ross Heart Hospital, East Hospital, University Hospital, and the James Cancer Center, but service is also provided at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. With six surgeons operating at the main campus, there is ample operative experience for both fellows and residents. There are three operating rooms dedicated to the vascular surgery service in the Ross Heart Hospital OR, one of which is a GE 740-equipped hybrid endovascular suite opened in September 2017. Peripheral vascular GE Innova suites are used in the cath lab and at East Hospital.
The crown jewel of the division is our accredited Vascular Surgery Fellowship, which has been in existence since 1978 and is one of the oldest vascular surgery fellowships in the country. This is a two-year fellowship, and qualified applicants have completed the requirements for certification in general surgery by the American Board of Surgery. A 0-5 Vascular Surgery will be developed while maintaining the 5-2 fellowship program into the future.
