The residency is based at seven clinical training sites; Duke University Hospital, The Durham VA Medical Center, Duke Regional Hospital, WakeMed, Duke Raleigh Hospital, and Duke Ambulatory Surgery Center.
- Duke University Hospital is a large tertiary referral center and a level 1 trauma center. The Vascular Surgery service at the University Hospital is a high volume practice with a large number and variety of complex cases including many major open arterial reconstructions, challenging limb salvage cases, and more esoteric disease processes like thoracic outlet syndrome and arteriovenous malformations.
- The Durham VA Medical Center is completely integrated into the Duke vascular practice and offers trainees the opportunity to more independently manage the broad array of advanced atherosclerotic vascular disease that is typical in the VA patient population. The VA rotation has a large volume of traditional open vascular procedures that are increasingly rare in the endovascular era.
- Duke Regional Hospital is a community hospital with a large number of complex dialysis patients as well as more routine limb salvage and cerebrovascular cases.
- The Duke Raleigh Hospital is a mid-sized community hospital in nearby Raleigh which supports three Duke Vascular Surgeons. These accomplished surgeons have recently joined the Duke team after many years in private practice. This site provides exposure to many of the sorts of cases commonly seen in a large, full-spectrum private practice as well an outpatient angiography procedures.
