Vascular Surgery Fellowship

The University of Cincinnati Vascular Surgery Fellowship is a two-year, ACGME fully-accredited clinical fellowship. In addition to a full standard operative caseload, all fellows perform more than 500 endovascular procedures during their fellowship and thus meet and exceed credentialing standards for endovascular privileging.

This fellowship offers a rare opportunity to become facile in both standard open surgical procedures, catheter-directed therapy for the treatment of vascular disease, as well as non-invasive vascular diagnostic laboratory training. Experience in outpatient venous interventions, dialysis access, and exposure to private practice vascular surgery completes the training, making the fellows quite marketable in both academic and private practice employment opportunities.

Academic and scholarly pursuits are critical to a fellow’s development and future career. Each fellow publishes a paper and/or chapter during their clinical fellowship. A formal lecture series has been developed in collaboration with other departments at the University to enhance the fellows’ understanding of vascular physiology, anatomy, embryology and pathology. In addition, a teaching session is held at the start of the academic year in the gross anatomy laboratory where the surgical anatomy of less frequently utilized operative exposures is reviewed. The fellows are required to take the Vascular Surgery In Training Examination annually.

The expanded clinical base provides an excellent educational experience for our vascular surgery fellows and the general surgery residents. Our past fellows have, with their endovascular skills, enjoyed ample employment opportunities in the geographical region of their choosing. The University of Cincinnati was one of the first programs approved for such a two-year clinical fellowship. The ACGME/RRC approval was based on the conventional and endovascular experience and the ability to obtain comprehensive non-invasive vascular lab training.
