Residency and Education

The Jackson Memorial Hospital through the University of Miami Division of Vascular Surgery offers an ACGME/RRC accredited fellowship in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery. Graduates from this program will be eligible to take the Vascular Certifying Examination and thus obtain a Vascular Certificate. The JMH/UM medical campus is a tertiary referral center, situated in downtown Miami. The program offers the full range of elective open and endovascular training procedures. Additionally, the program offers ample opportunities for clinical research involvement with potential for academic presentations and publications.

The Vascular Surgery Fellowship at Jackson Memorial Hospital is a program that was established to train individuals who have successfully completed a general surgery residency to become qualified vascular surgeons in the private or academic sector. The fellows will be immersed with operative experience immediately. The fellows divide their time between Miami Veterans Administration Medical Center and the University of Miami Hospital and Jackson Memorial Hospital and the Ryder Trauma Center. The operative cases will incoporate a wide breadth of both open and endovascular procedures. During this time, the fellow will also spend time in the noninvasive vascular laboratory learning how to perform, record, and interpret exams. It is expected that the fellow will gain the proficiency and experience to take the Registered Physicians Vascular Interpretation (RPVI) examination at the end of the first year.

Applicants must have completed five years of General Surgery training in an ACGME accredited program and be American Board of Surgery Certified or Eligible. International medical graduates must hold a valid ECFMG certificate.
