Welcome from the Program Directors

Thank you for your interest in the Duke University Vascular Residency program, which we feel represents the most comprehensive exposure to clinical vascular surgery that you will find anywhere.

Our Division of Vascular Surgery has a very high volume of cases in all major areas of modern vascular surgical practice including open aortic reconstruction, branched aortic endografting, carotid endarterectomy and stenting, complex open and endovascular limb salvage, central venous reconstruction and vein ablation techniques, and treatment of arteriovenous malformations. 

Our trainees are the center of our clinical practice and senior trainees run the Vascular Surgery services at the VA and the University Hospital. They far surpass the required number of cases in all categories and have a degree of autonomy that prepares our graduates for independent practice. 

In addition, we have a collaborative relationship with a very strong General Surgery training program, which provides exposure to essential aspects of managing the perioperative care of surgical patients. We feel strongly that rotations in the ICU or on General Surgery services are not just “filler” but essential learning experiences for the modern vascular surgeon.
