Open Resident Positions

Geisinger Medical Center

Posted July 2016
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.
  • USMLE Transcripts
  • ECFMG status report (foreign medical school graduates)

University of Wisconsin

The Vascular Surgery Fellowship at the University of Wisconsin is an ACGME-approved two-year clinical residency program consisting of training opportunities at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics, the William S. Middleton Memorial VA Hospital and Meriter Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin. We have an open two-year fellowship position with a start date of July1, 2015. Currently we have been matching one fellow every other year and matching one vascular resident yearly for our integrated vascular residency that was founded in 2010. Due to the expansion of our clinical volume and an increase in the number of faculty members in the Division of Vascular Surgery we are expanding our training programs so that we will now match one vascular surgery fellow and one integrated vascular resident a year. This decision was reached after the deadline for this year’s match thus creating an opportunity for a well-trained general surgery resident who either did not match or has made his/her decision to pursue a career in vascular surgery late in their training to apply for this open fellowship position. 

The goal of our fellowship is to provide a cutting-edge learning environment and world-class teaching faculty that will enrich the competency of vascular surgery fellows in basic science and clinical curriculum while complying with the 80-hour work week. Our faculty members are committed to providing the vascular residents with the tools and training needed to succeed in the specialty of vascular surgery. We are proud that 100 percent of our trainees have passed their American Board of Surgery Qualifying and Certifying Exams in Vascular Surgery on their first attempts.

The current training paradigm is two years of clinical training in open vascular surgery and endovascular intervention. Because of our reputation and excellent outcomes we are a regional referral center for aortic and other complex vascular disease. Our fellows have routinely submitted operative case logs which rank their operative experience in over the 90th percentile in many categories including thoracoabdominal and infrarenal aneurysm repair, repair of abdominal obstructive disease and total major vascular cases. We are fortunate to have hybrid operating rooms at both the University and VA Hospitals and a dedicated peripheral endovascular room in the cath lab at our University Hospital. Our fellows’ experiences in therapeutic percutaneous endovascular interventions and endovascular aneurysm repairs rank them over the 85th percentile of trainees nationally.  

In addition to our busy clinical training program, the faculty members are committed to teaching the fellow critical thinking skills and to improve his/her interpersonal communication abilities while fostering a collegial environment in which to learn and work. Clinical research, teaching and scholarly activity are critical components of the fellowship. 

Applicants will have completed an ACGME-accredited general surgery residency prior to beginning their vascular training. Please submit in your application: UWHC GME Application (attached), current and former Program Director(s) letter of recommendation (original letters), USMLE scores, minimum of 2 letters of recommendation, medical school transcript, dean’s letter, and personal statement.

With ACGME approval the University of Washington (UW) Division of Vascular Surgery now offers a 0+5 vascular surgery integrated residency program leading to board certification in vascular surgery. 

The first two years will include clinical training in core surgical education and the final three years will comprise senior-level training in vascular surgery.  The new residency program will add one candidate per year (directly following medical school) and will complement our existing two-year AGME-accredited fellowship. 

The UW vascular surgery training program provides a comprehensive “immersion” in the diagnosis and management of all aspects of vascular disease in a multi-disciplinary context.  Our new residency program represents a major time investment, is aligned with the young vascular surgery trainee’s career focus, and will certainly produce highly trained and qualified surgeons.
