With ACGME approval we offer a five-year integrated residency leading to board certification in vascular surgery. The first two years include clinical training in core surgical education and the final three years comprise senior-level training in vascular surgery. The residency program adds one candidate per year (directly following medical school) and complements our existing two-year AGME-accredited fellowship.
Vascular surgery has evolved rapidly in recent decades. As technology evolves, open surgical treatments are giving way to minimally invasive strategies, often involving percutaneous devices or robotic tools. The next generation of vascular surgeons must be proficient in traditional and non-traditional approaches. The UW vascular surgery training program provides a comprehensive immersion in the diagnosis and management of all aspects of vascular disease in a multi-disciplinary context. The curriculum provides trainees with substantial and robust experience.
