The Stanford Vascular Surgery Fellowship is an RRC-accredited two-year fellowship leading to board eligibility for a certificate of Special Qualifications in Vascular Surgery granted by the American Board of Surgery. The first year is devoted to a busy clinical experience involving, as the primary surgeon, a large number and variety of open and endovascular cases and supervising the management of an active inpatient vascular surgery service for equal amounts of time. These are performed at our three affiliated hospitals with a heterogeneous mix of patient populations, the county hospital Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, the VA Palo Alto Hospital, and the complex referral practice at Stanford University Medical Center. The second year is an intensive year spent as the primary surgeon at Stanford University Hospital for the majority of the year, supervising and running one of the busiest practices in the country. There is an emphasis on complex aortic pathology, advanced endovascular interventions, noninvasive diagnosis, and clinical research. There is ample opportunity to present at national meetings and produce peer-reviewed publications during both years.
