Vascular Surgery Fellowship
Welcome to the University of Minnesota Vascular Surgery Fellowship website! We are delighted to provide you with information about our division and our training program.
The University of Minnesota is located in Minneapolis, which is adjacent to St. Paul -- both fantastic places to live! The “Twin Cities” are frequently ranked in the top ten places to live in the country due to excellent value and high quality of life. In addition to a wide range of cultural, sports, and entertainment venues, there are tremendous opportunities for outdoor activities during all four seasons. Please see more information about the Twin Cities.
Our division offers two ACGME-accredited training pathways for individuals seeking careers in vascular surgery. The integrated program is a five-year residency for graduates of accredited medical schools. The independent program is a two-year fellowship for graduates of ACGME accredited general surgery residency programs. Graduates of both programs are eligible to become certified by the Vascular Surgery Board of the American Board of Surgery.
Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing the best possible experience for trainees in both programs. Our educational curriculum combines clinical, didactic, and technical components to ensure that graduates are equipped with state-of-the-art vascular knowledge and skills. The clinical rotations are based at five separate hospitals, providing exposure to highly diverse patient populations with a wide range of vascular pathology. Senior integrated residents and vascular fellows rotate on separate services, so there is no competition for cases. Graduates of both programs are highly trained vascular surgeons with expertise in open operations, endovascular procedures, noninvasive laboratory interpretation, and medical treatment of vascular disease. See an example of a recent graduate’s case experience.
