The Vascular Fellowship is an accredited two-year program with both years devoted to clinical work. The University of Washington Fellowship provides comprehensive training in all areas of vascular surgery. Our trainees rotate at the University of Washington Medical Center, the Puget Sound VA Hospital, Harborview Medical Center and Valley Medical Center. The Fellowship provides a rigorous experience in a wide variety of vascular cases such as complex aortic cases including fenestrated and branched endovascular aortic surgery, open aortic reconstructions, venous reconstructions, vascular malformations, vascular access and an extensive peripheral experience in open and endovascular techniques. The rotation at our Level 1 Trauma Center also offers significant exposure to vascular trauma and the treatment of ruptured AAA.
Our program is dedicated to the integral formation of diverse individuals who will become exceptional clinicians. Research is encouraged during the Fellowship; our trainees have presented at national meetings and have published extensively.
