Open Resident Positions

Geisinger Medical Center

Posted March 2017

The Vascular Surgery Fellowship at Geisinger Medical Center has an unexpected fellowship position available starting on August 1, 2017.   Interested candidates must have completed an ACGME approved General Surgery Residency by July 2017.   This position is for a traditional 5+2 candidate in good standing with their current training program.

Our Program is a two-year ACGME-accredited program that has been training fellows since 1981.   First-year fellows participate in a large amount of endovascular surgery and a modest amount of traditional open vascular surgery procedures.  These procedures are done under the supervision of the vascular trained staff surgeons. The vascular surgeons are primary interventionalists for all procedures including carotid, peripheral, and visceral stenting, thoracic stent grafts, and AAA stent grafts.  A one-month block is spent in learning vascular lab skills including hands-on scanning in our own vascular laboratory with one of the 12 registered vascular technicians. The fellows also read studies one day per week with instruction from the staff vascular surgeons, this allows the fellows to prepare for the RPVI exam. The remaining time in the first year (approximately 15 percent) is spent in research efforts looking at either clinical projects or the pathophysiology of abdominal aortic aneurysms. The basic research program is supported with full-time research technicians.

The second year comprises the traditional open surgical and advanced endovascular training. Surgical volume within the Department of Vascular Surgery is in excess of 1,500 cases per year. Attending surgical staff supervises the fellows in clinic a half day per week.

The formal education program is structured around weekly didactic clinical sessions, preoperative conferences, staff rounds, morbidity/mortality conferences and a monthly journal club.

All of this is available in the congenial atmosphere of a 1,000-physician multi-specialty clinic at the center of a regional organized system of health care servicing 44 counties and more than 3 million people. The very competitive R-6 and R-7 salary is complemented by the rural cost of living and a full benefits package including paid vacation time, funded CME time and expenses for presentations at national meetings.

Interested applicants must send the following:

  • Current CV
  • Personal Goals Statement
  • Medical School Transcript
  • Dean’s Letter/MSPE
  • Three Letters of Recommendation including one from current Program Director.
