The Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy at the University of Pennsylvania provides opportunities for residency training in Vascular Surgery including a traditional two-year residency and a five year integrated vascular surgery residency. The Vascular Surgery Residency is approved by the Residency Review Committee for Surgery of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. Upon completion of training, residents are eligible for examination by the American Board of Surgery in Vascular Surgery.
It is our mission to select talented and highly motivated individuals who are ready to pursue training in vascular surgery. We provide a high volume of clinical experience with associated conference and didactic instruction and exposure to research. We have designed our residency to provide a balanced experience of open and endovascular cases, inpatient and outpatient care and the exposure to and involvement with academics in vascular surgery. Our graduates are well trained to face clinical challenges and also pursue academic careers after they have finished the program.
