Integrated Vascular Surgery Residency Program

One of the first programs of its kind, our Integrated Vascular Surgery Residency prepares you to succeed in academic vascular surgery with a broad clinical foundation and protected time for academic and research pursuits.

Our residency program offers:

  • Extensive experience in open and endovascular cases, with a near-equal distribution of volume.
  • Four diverse clinical training sites. The VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System for experience with routine vascular surgery; Henry Ford-Allegiance; St. Joseph Mercy Hospital; and Michigan Medicine, a large academic medical center drawing diverse and complex cases from around the country and the world.
  • Exposure to all aspects of vascular surgery. Our 9 operating surgeons represent all aspects of the specialty, from common vascular procedures to specialized practices such as complex cerebrovascular reconstructions, advanced open reconstruction of the thoracic and abdominal aorta and visceral branches, advanced endovascular procedures, thoracic outlet syndrome decompressions, and pediatric vascular procedures. It’s not unusual for our residents to return from a national conference having amazed their peers with the caseload and case diversity at Michigan.
  • Two years of protected and funded academic development time between the third and fourth clinical years — a rarity among vascular residency programs that provides a valuable opportunity to round out your training with basic, translational, and health services research, publications and presentations, and leadership development.
  • A record of excellent outcomes, including a 100% vascular surgery QE and CE pass rate and graduate placements in sought-after positions.

Ultimately, our goal is to graduate skilled vascular surgeons who go on to continue our specialty’s legacy of innovation, go on to advance the care of vascular patients and who enjoy long and fruitful careers in academic vascular surgery.
