Vascular Surgery Fellowship

Vascular Surgery Fellowship

We offer a two-year vascular surgery fellowship. The first year is a clinical year at UK Hospital.This year provides a broad exposure to the treatment of complex aortic, carotid, and upper and lower extremity peripheral vascular disease. This training period will focus on traditional open surgical techniques, but will also include an initial exposure to catheter-based intervention.

In the second year, the fellow functions as a junior attending. The prime focus of this year is for advanced training in endovascular angioplasty; and peripheral thrombolysis. In addition, the year provides an opportunity for clinical or basic science research and in-depth exposure to vascular laboratory interpretation. It is expected that upon completion of the fellowship, trainees will be able to achieve Board Certification in Vascular Surgery and have full credentials in both the open and endovascular treatment of peripheral vascular diseases.

Selection to the fellowship is accomplished through the National Resident Matching Program. Interested candidates are asked to submit their applications through ERAS. Only applications entered electronically will be accepted. Qualified applicants will be invited for interviews.

Start date: July 1.
End date: June 30.
Applications are reviewed in January.
