334A Advanced Vascular Surgery Clerkship (SUMC)
Will provide a focused study of disease processes of the peripheral vascular system.  This includes problems related to lower extremity occlusive disease, arterial aneurysms and venous disorders.  There is a special emphasis on preoperative patient assessment both clinically and radiographically.  The student will be exposed to the management of vascular patients by both traditional open techniques and newer minimally-invasive endovascular routes.  Extensive operative experience in the operating room and the angiography suite is provided, and can be at either SUMC or the PAVAMC.  Procedures include diagnostic arteriography, arterial and venous reconstruction, aortic endografting, and other advanced catheter-based interventions.  The student will be an integral part of the vascular surgery service and work alongside interns, general surgery residents, and the vascular fellows.  Weekly attendance at surgical and multidisciplinary conferences at SUMC is required. This clerkship is directed by Dr. Jason Lee, Assistant Professor of Surgery.
