Vascular Surgery Fellowship
Eastern Virginia Medical School's Division of Vascular Surgery offers an accredited 2-year fellowship program that follows completion of an accredited 5-year General Surgery program, and is approved for 3 positions per year. At the end of the 2 years, Graduates are expected to have the skills necessary to diagnose and define abnormalities of the vascular system, formulate a treatment plan based on available medical and surgical therapeutic options and perform all various surgical and endovascular reconstructive procedures deemed necessary.
The Graduating Vascular Surgeon will also have an in-depth understanding of the pathophysiology of vascular disease, especially in areas of hemodynamics, predisposing factors for atherosclerotic disease and knowledge of the pharmacokinetics of drugs used in the treatment of vascular pathology. Fellows have the opportunity to work with upwards of 15 Vascular Surgery Faculty and Attendings of diverse training backgrounds and specialty interests. EVMS Division of Vascular Surgery has been awarded a full 5-year accreditation cycle with the ACGME, and Program Graduates experience exceptionally high specialty board pass rates. Additionally, Fellows are exposed to a broad range of open and endovascular procedures at our affiliated hospitals, Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, Sentara CarePlex Hospital and Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital.
