The Vascular Surgery Fellowship program at Grandview Hospital is an extensive fellowship, which involves approximately 700-800 vascular procedures including endovascular techniques, laser, cryopreserved vein grafts and all modalities that are presently employed for correction of underlying vascular pathology. During the fellowship, there is a rotation through the noninvasive vascular laboratory that is a well-established, locally prominent laboratory performing 5,000-6,000 studies yearly, utilizing state-of-the-art noninvasive modalities. Tests performed at the vascular laboratory include arterial studies, graft imaging, venous ultrasound, Doppler, vein mapping, abdominal Doppler including renovascular and transcranial studies. Fellows completing a one-year program are not offered the opportunity for outside rotation and extensive involvement with a noninvasive laboratory except superficial exposure. During the second year of fellowship, there is a three-month outside rotation at another vascular program.
Special emphasis is placed on developing technical abilities, diagnostic competency, sound medical and surgical judgment, preoperative and postoperative care, as well as progressive development and responsibility. Throughout the training program, high ethical and moral standards in the Surgical Fellow are emphasized. Fellows will be exposed to basic sciences as related to surgical practice, and have required rotations in various specialty areas relating to the practice of surgery.
