The Vascular Fellowship is an accredited two-year program with both years devoted to clinical work. Because of significant new requirements for training in vascular surgery, the first year is devoted to training in non-invasive approaches to diagnosis of vascular disorders and catheter-based training in endovascular surgery. The second year, largely based at the Veteran's Affairs Puget Sound Health Care System hospital, continues to focus on training in open vascular surgery.
All applicants must register with both of the following services: the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and with the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). The ERAS website can be found at http://www.aamc.org/students/eras/start.htm. The NRMP website can be found at http://www.nrmp.org
PLEASE NOTE: Registering with ERAS does not register applicants with the NRMP, nor does registering with the NRMP register applicants for ERAS. You must register with both services at their separate websites.
Individuals applying to our Fellowship Program must submit the following materials through ERAS. All of the following materials are required to complete your application:
- The application, as well as your curriculum vitae, and bibliography.
- A statement of career goals.
- Three letters of recommendation, one of which must be from the Chief of your service. (Dean's Letters will not be accepted as a substitute.)
Important Program Update:
**The UW division of Vascular Surgery has recently encountered unusual circumstances. We have formally withdrawn from the 2013 National Match Process, and will not be recruiting a fellow during this year’s match.**
