Resident Life

The University of Rochester's Vascular Surgery Residents have a strong camaraderie amongst themselves and with the faculty. Numerous off-site activities contribute to establishing and strengthening of friendships, and ultimately lead to the creation of a strong team. Because of this, the residents are well-rounded and better able to deal with the stresses that they face in their professional life.
