Residency Program

We appreciate your interest in the Vascular Surgery Integrated Residency at Stanford University Medical Center. As you may know, approval by the American Board of Surgery and the ACGME has allowed the creation of integrated "0-5" Vascular Surgery Residencies. We have full approval from the RRC for our integrated 0-5 residency program and matched our first intern George Lee in June 2008, who completed his training in 2013 and has joined our faculty. Success of the integrated residency is based upon our longstanding tradition and ability to recruit future leaders in American vascular surgery.

Since 2013, our 0+5 integrated program now includes a 2-year professional development requirement that is expected to be taken after the 3rd clinical year. This effectively makes our residency a 7-year program. We strongly believe this curriculum and structure is necessary to provide the training to succeed in academic vascular surgery. Watch an interview of Elsie Gyang, MD, Stanford Vascular Surgery Resident, which emphasizes how the T32-enabled research time in the Integrated Residency will help our residents succeed in academic practice.

Below is the grid for the 5 year training program.
