Curriculum

The resident's working day begins by making independent rounds. Every morning, the residents meet with the faculty at morning rounds, review all patients, and develop a plan of care for each patient. Between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m., there are appropriate teaching conferences. At 8 a.m., our operating schedule begins.

There are five scheduled teaching conferences every week enhanced from lectures of visiting experts in the field. National and international experts complement our coursework at various intervals. The curriculum and course outline follow the Association of Program Directors in Vascular Surgery guidelines. Our department provides residents with appropriate, unlimited research opportunities.

Team Schedule

  1. This schedule assumes that there will be two residents per year and either one or two per year thereafter. There will be some overlap in duties, and residents will have primary but not exclusive responsibility for inpatient or outpatient services. We will pair PGY-6 and PGY-7 into clinical teams with rotating general surgery residents. Research endeavors will be encouraged.
