I knew right away that Ochsner was a great fit for me. It is a busy tertiary center with exposure to a wide variety of vascular procedures, from bread and butter surgeries to complex endovascular aortic operations. Also, the attendings are approachable and incredibly invested in teaching and mentoring the fellows. I felt that training here would prepare me very well for the boards and enable me to take my career any direction I wanted after graduating.
I knew there was something special about the vascular surgery section at Ochsner from my interview. The operative volume and variety is outstanding. The support from staff is second-to-none. Whether you want to gain research experience, or focus on clinical training, this program is passionate about supporting its fellow's goals. The vascular section at Ochsner feels like a family. I couldn't imagine training anywhere else.
