The goal of the two-year General Vascular SurgeryFellowship program is to produce clinically excellent physicians who are equipped to diagnose and treat the entire spectrum of vascular disease.
The fellowship involves clinical experience at the University of Connecticut Health Center and Hartford Hospital. Each facility offers a balanced exposure to open and endovascular surgery. The program philosophy is the emphasize each of these facets equally in order to avoid any training deficiencies. Furthermore, the Vascular Laboratory at Hartford Hospital is an ICAVL accredited facility which performs more then 8000 diagnostic tests annually on the venous, peripheral arterial, and cerebral systems. Thus, the fellow has sufficient non-invasive volume to qualify for RPVI certification. Clinical research is a mandated component of this program.
