Supervisory Policy
A chain of command exists emphasizing graded authority and increasing responsibility as experience is gained, with the vascular resident having more authority and responsibility than the general surgery residents. Judgments on this delegation of responsibility are made by the attending surgeon who is ultimately responsible for each patient’s care; they are based on his or her direct observation and knowledge of each vascular resident’s skills and ability. Proper supervision does not conflict with progressively more independent decision-making on the part of the vascular resident; thus, the degree of supervision may vary with the clinical circumstances and the stage of the vascular resident.
