Medical Student/Resident Resources

VSGNE/NESVS Vascular Research Fellowship (2024-2025)

The VSGNE/NESVS Vascular Research Fellowship will run for 12 months (July 2024 - June 2025). The course will consist of 12 lectures which will take place virtually on a monthly basis. Additionally, residents and medical students will be paired with a research mentor who will help them complete a vascular research project.

The project should focus on using large databases such as VQI data, and the mentor will provide assistance on project design, submitting a proposal to the regional database review committee, statistical analysis, submission of an abstract to regional or national society meetings, and writing of the paper. The first half of the year will focus on how to complete a VQI project, while the second half of the year will provide education on other types of research projects.

Vascular Surgery Training Pathways

In 2006, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) approved the Primary Certificate in Vascular Surgery which eliminates the requirement for certification in general surgery prior to certification in vascular surgery. This creates more than one training pathway.
