EVMS' Vascular Surgery Integrated Residency is accredited to accept one resident per year. The program seeks individuals who will excel in all aspects of their graduate medical training, demonstrate elevated level of responsibility, work ethic and resilience required for this Specialty. Applicants with a sincere interest in the program are encouraged to participate in elective opportunities and visit EVMS Vascular Surgery to maximize their personal contact with faculty and fellows.
The residency's interview season opens in mid-September. Candidates must apply through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Paper applications will not be accepted. A preliminary review of each applicant will be made upon receipt of a completed application.
Completed applications consist of all ERAS materials and the items below:
- Dean's letter
- Three letters of recommendation
- USLME Step 1 score (Step 2 preferred)
- Personal statement
International applicants must also have J-1 visas and have gained previous U.S. clinical experience.
Once applications are reviewed, applicants selected to interview will be sent an email using the email address from the ERAS application. All application materials should be in ERAS by Nov. 8 for consideration. Applicants not chosen for an interview will also be notified by email.
Applicants will have one-on-one interviews with three faculty members, including the Program Director. At the conclusion of the interviews, current trainees join applicants for lunch and a tour of the campus.
A reception is held the evening prior to the interview day at the Waterside District in downtown Norfolk. The reception is an opportunity for applicants to meet the trainees informally.
