Accredited Vascular Surgery Residency and Fellowship Training
The Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy at University Hospitals, in collaboration with Case Western Reserve University, supports highly successful and competitive Accreditation Council for Graduate Education (ACGME)-approved training programs. Both our residency and fellowship training programs recently underwent review by the ACGME and have been successfully accredited for another 10-year cycle.
The Case Western Reserve University/University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center Integrated Vascular Surgery Residency (0+5) program began in 2012.
The Case Western Reserve University/University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center Fellowship in Vascular Surgery is a two-year program and is approved for one or two fellows each year, leading to certification in Vascular Surgery by the American Board of Surgery. This has been in place since 1991.
- Medical Students
In addition, we actively participate in the education of general surgery residents and medical students from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.
Comprehensive Vascular Clinical Care with System-Wide Integration
The Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy provides comprehensive care for patients with diseases of the vascular system to reduce morbidity and mortality from these diseases and improve their quality of life. We do this through education, research and scientifically-based, compassionately delivered clinical care employing the latest advanced techniques and technology.
A large number of our procedures are exclusively or partially catheter-based and minimally invasive. This has greatly broadened the scope of our clinical activities and is reflected in the name Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy.
As one of the Divisions within the Department of Surgery at University Hospitals, we participate fully in its academic and educational programs. The Division is also an integral component of the University Hospitals Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute of University Hospitals, working closely with colleagues from cardiovascular medicine, cardiac surgery, podiatry, and radiology to create system-wide integration and improvements in cardiovascular care.
