Integrated Vascular Surgery Residency


The mission of the Yale Integrated Vascular Surgery Residency Program is to train the next generation of academic vascular surgery leaders. Residents will be exposed to the full spectrum of endovascular and open surgical procedures in a quaternary referral center environment. Each trainee will also spend time in the pursuit of a research experience where they learn how to design and publish investigative efforts in areas of their choosing. Potential opportunities exist in a wide variety of fields including basic science, translational, public health, and large database outcomes research. Our goal is to allow all vascular surgery trainees to develop into skilled, confident surgeons with the ability to pursue careers in academic surgery. Upon completion of this program, trainees will be eligible for certification in Vascular Surgery through the American Board of Surgery.

At Yale Vascular Surgery, we foster a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion among our faculty, residents and staff. We value and embrace differences in race, age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and nationality. This culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion, strengthens our team, fortifies our performance, and enhances the care of our patients. In our residency program, we strive to recruit and train highly successful, diverse and ambitious candidates, who will be an integral component of the future vascular surgery workforce, that represents the diversity of our country and the patients we serve.
