UVA Vascular Surgery Residency Curriculum
The primary goals of the Vascular
Surgery residency at the University of Virginia are to educate and
train the next generation of vascular surgeons. In order to achieve the
educational goals, the primary focus is on operative and endovascular
experiences for the resident and the early and increased autonomy for
them as they gain experience in the pre-operative, peri-operative, and
post-operative care and management of vascular surgical patients. As
part of the program there are several didactic conferences.

Through participation in weekly interdisciplinary clinical conferences (see table) residents are exposed to a wide variety of ideas and perspectives regarding the treatment of vascular diseases. The residents will present topics for discussion at clinical case conference, multidisciplinary conferences and at local and national vascular surgery meetings. Each vascular surgery resident will attend one national scientific conference and one regional conference or educational course annually. It is the goal of the vascular surgery faculty to teach by example, and with daily contact, demonstrate at all times the highest level of integrity, professionalism, dedication to service and compassion toward those entrusted in their care.
At the University of Virginia we participate in the vascular surgical match coordinated through the NRMP. We have (2) two positions annually and accept applications via ERAS system during the fellowship match season which runs December – April.
Application: General Surgery Residents apply during their 4th year in general surgery via Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). 5:2 program. Applicants who successfully complete a general surgery residency program accredited by ACGME will be considered.
Interested applicants will have their applications are viewed by faculty members in Division of Vascular and endovascular Surgery and select number of individuals are invited to interview at the University each year. There are typically two (2) interview dates in late winter/early spring each year. Following the interview process, the faculty meet and determine the rank order then submit to the NRMP in anticipation of May match.
To initiate your application to the University of Virginia Vascular surgery residency program, please note the following:
The educational philosophy and approach at UVA is that all residents are mature learners who have control over their environment, circumstances, and education. A faculty goal is to remove obstacles to learning and to actively participate in teaching. This approach requires a commitment to teaching at all levels.
