Vascular Surgery Fellowship - Introduction
Vascular Surgery Fellowship at Staten Island University Hospital is an ACGME accredited 2 years comprehensive training program in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery. It is offered to those who have completed an ACGME approved General Surgery residency. One position is offered every year through the ERAS with a total of 2 fellows training at a given time.
Established in 2001, Vascular Surgery fellowship at SIUH provides a comprehensive exposure to patients with diseases of the arterial, venous, and lymphatic systems. Extensive exposure to complex vascular pathology at our vascular surgery program is second to none. We perform approximately, 1200 vascular cases annually. We are 1 out of 7 vascular surgery training programs in New York City. The faculty at SIUH is fully trained, board certified, and are well recognized in the field of vascular surgery.
Each fellow works closely with faculty members who review the fellow's progress and assist in meeting the fellow's career goals. The program director also meets with the fellows four times during the academic year to assess the fellow's academic progression. Due to high clinical volume, our fellows usually meet the defined category case requirement by the end of their first year or beginning of the second year.
We are committed to training highest quality vascular surgeons who can go out and make a significant difference in patient's lives. We welcome you to learn more about our program through this website or by contacting our program coordinator.
