Vascular Surgery Residency Program

The integrated vascular surgery residency program at the University of Texas Medical Branch is a thriving and exciting program in which to train. One applicant per year is selected for the five-year program. Vascular surgery residents learn basic surgical principles by exposure to a wide variety of surgical specialties including general surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, transplant surgery, hepatobiliary surgery, and trauma surgery. Five vascular surgeons make up the core faculty for the integrated residency program. These faculty teach the breadth of vascular surgery skills and principles. Residents will learn advanced endovascular skills for treating vascular disease from head-to-toe including endovascular aortic aneurysm repair, carotid stenting, and advanced treatments for peripheral arterial disease. The vascular lab at the University of Texas Medical Branch is accredited and offers a thorough exposure to noninvasive vascular testing and interpretation. Residents will have a dedicated three month period for research during which they can concentrate on projects of their choosing. Opportunities exist for regional and national presentations with covered travel expenses.
