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, University Hospital and the James Cancer Center, but service is also provided at University Hospital East and Nationwide Children’s Hospital. With five 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 Innova-equipped hybrid endovascular suite. Another dedicated peripheral vascular GE Innova suite is used in the cath lab.
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.
