Vascular Surgery Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital

Our Clinical Vascular Fellowship program, which takes place at The Mount Sinai Hospital, offers two-year positions to highly qualified individuals each year. Our vascular surgery program is one of the busiest in the nation, and you can expect exposure to a large number of open and endovascular surgical cases.

You also receive training in noninvasive diagnostic techniques at the Marie-Josée and Henry R. Kravis Center for Cardiovascular Health, an Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories-accredited facility. The Division of Vascular Surgery has been training vascular fellows since the early 1960s. We select one fellow each year.

Curriculum

Our fellows participate in six two-month block rotations on the red and blue service at The Mount Sinai Hospital; interventional radiology; and at our affiliate hospitals, Englewood Medical Center, James J. Peters V.A. Medical Center, and Mount Sinai West, where you assist on complex aortic cases. During the interventional radiology rotation, you may be able to perform diagnostic studies, angioplasties, and chemoembolizations. Fellows are encouraged to take elective rotations with the Vascular Diagnostics Lab. There is also four weeks of vacation. This fellowship offers sufficient experience in both the interpretation and hands-on performance of noninvasive studies and qualifies you to sit for competitive exams such as the Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation examination.

Fellows are involved in our extensive research activities. We submit abstracts to every major vascular meeting, and you will participate and present at one or more conferences. You also attend our research conferences. You will also have the opportunity to publish book chapters and journal articles.
