Carle Foundation Hospital 
Posted January 2020

The Carle Vascular Surgery Residency is an integrated training program designed to develop medical students who desire to become board-certified vascular surgeons.  The Carle Foundation Hospital is a large community and home to the Carle Illinois College of Medicine.  Residents enjoy access to experienced faculty in a vibrant residency training system situated in a culturally diverse college town in the heart of Illinois. The Vascular Surgery program is brand new, taking its first class in July 2020.  Residents work closely with board-certified vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, clinical advanced practice providers, general surgery residents, and dedicated general surgery faculty.  Under close faculty mentorship, the program tailors the clinical and operative responsibilities over the course of the residency leading to a highly skilled, independent vascular surgeon. The residency is organized so that endovascular procedures, open surgery, non-invasive vascular laboratory instruction, and inpatient and outpatient care are integrated in a progressive fashion throughout all years of training.
