The fellowship is divided into two 1-year blocks. The first year of training is designed to give exposure to endovascular and open techniques, as well as research opportunities and the noninvasive vascular laboratory. The fellow spends 2 days a week on the vascular service at Chabert Medical Center under the direct supervision of the vascular staff. The remaining time is spent pursuing research interests and gaining exposure to the ICAVL-accredited noninvasive vascular laboratory. The vascular fellow participates in ongoing clinical research programs and is also encouraged to formulate independent projects. These research projects have routinely culminated in multiple peer-reviewed publications and presentations at regional and national vascular meetings. Opportunities for significant exposure to the noninvasive vascular laboratory are also available during this first year of fellowship.

The second year of training is spent as the full-time clinical fellow. The fellow directs a busy clinical service that encounters an average volume of 850 cases per year. These cases include open and endovascular treatment of the complete spectrum of vascular disease. In addition to perioperative management, the fellow spends a minimum of 1 day per week with the staff in the clinic evaluating both new and postoperative patients.
