Integrated Vascular Residency Training Program
The integrated vascular surgery residency program at the UMass Memorial Medical Center is designed to provide graduated, incremental training in both vascular and core general surgery during a five-year program. This program was the seventh in the country and uniformly draws from the most outstanding applicants in the nation. The integrated vascular residency leads to individual qualifications for certification in vascular surgery by the American Board of Surgery.
We have designed a custom rotation schedule which integrates rotations during the first three years that are specifically critical to the practicing vascular specialist, and then we provide chief residency experience in vascular surgery during the fourth and fifth years.
A total of 36 months are spent on vascular surgery, and 24 months on core or general surgery rotations. The schedule has been specifically designed to appropriately leverage the strengths of general surgery, intensive care unit, cardiothoracic surgery, cardiology, radiology, emergency medicine, and anesthesia rotations in order to optimize learning.
Our program prides itself on being well-rounded with the largest open vascular and endovascular case volume in Massachusetts. More information about the UMass Memorial Medical Center Integrated Vascular Residency program can be learned on our Medical School website.
