Vascular Surgery residents in the first two years will be allotted one two-week paid vacation per year, which is scheduled along with the clinical rotations at the beginning of the academic year. In the final three years, residents may take two separate one-week vacation periods which are scheduled with the other senior trainees and the program director to minimize disruption of the clinical services. Vacation is typically taken during less busy clinical rotations.
Vascular Surgery residents are encouraged to attend at least one meeting per academic year. All travel must occur in the U.S. Residents are encouraged to be academically productive and will be granted additional meeting time for approved meetings where they have had an abstract accepted.
Residents should check with the Program Director prior to submitting abstracts to determine if the meeting is appropriate and confirm that travel will be supported by the division.
