Comprehensive Training for Vascular Surgery
The Vascular Surgery Fellowship is one of a select number of fellowship positions within the Department of Surgery. It is a program complementary within the educational process for the residency in general surgery. The Vascular Surgery fellow has teaching responsibilities within the General Surgery program. This fellowship is unique in that it encompasses both a component of Vascular Surgery as well as Endovascular and Interventional Radiology experiences.
The goal of the Vascular Surgery Fellowship is to educate clinically competent vascular surgeons who will devote the majority of their time to the specialty of Vascular Surgery and make career contributions to the academic foundations of the discipline.
Several characteristics of the Vascular Surgery Fellowship program are:
- A diverse, dedicated faculty of 10 board-certified vascular surgeons;
- Exposure to the full complement of endovascular therapies and open surgical techniques;
- Training in non-invasive vascular laboratory testing; and
- Participation in scholarly activity and clinical research.

Farda Qayyum 2021 Graduate, UPMC Pinnacle, Harrisburg, Penn.The volume of complex cases is by far the most notable quality of the program. Coming out of this fellowship, I will be prepared to take on any case. We get an incredible amount of autonomy starting very early on. Our daily board is an unparalleled forum for learning.
Ryan P. Lydon, MD 2020 Graduate, Vascular Surgery Associates, Rochester, New YorkThe complexity and volume of both endovascular and open cases allows for very few things that you haven't seen before. That gives, even a new vascular attending, a level of calm, composure, and confidence that is appreciated and admired by both patients and other surgeons.
