The integrated vascular surgery residency at the University of Rochester dedicates 5 years to clinical training in vascular surgery combined with core rotations in general surgery and vascular disease. The 0+5 training paradigm leads to primary board certification in vascular surgery. As one of the first institutions to embrace an integrated training program in 2006, we offer a unique opportunity for trainees to learn the art and science of vascular surgery in a variety of training environments.
UR Vascular Surgery offers a robust and cohesive program for resident education and research. Residents will participate in high-functioning teams and will develop expertise and proficiencies within five targeted sub-specialty areas: aortic disease, limb preservation, cerebral vascular, vein disease, and imaging.
Our focus is to create education and research programs that support strong resident training, academic and workforce experiences, and offers trainees high case volumes and career development in vascular surgery and research.
Vascular Surgery and Diversity
Events surrounding the publication and subsequent retraction of an article in the Journal of Vascular Surgery highlight the continued professional disparities not only within our specialty, but also society as a whole. Endorsement of legacy professionalism standards is detrimental. Lack of diversity within our specialty represents a threat to the future of Vascular Surgery as an innovative, rewarding, and evolving profession. The faculty and trainees of the Division remain committed to fostering diversity, recognizing biases, and always improving so as to recruit the best and brightest into our field. Toward that end, the Division fully supports the draft letter to the editor penned by female vascular trainees (including two of our own), and co-signed by all of the trainees in our program.
