Starting a vascular surgery integrated program or fellowship can be a daunting process. There exist a number of misconceptions about required case volume, program affiliations, and required number of faculty.
Requirements for creating such programs have recently been lightened. And the SVS and the Association of Program Directors in Vascular Surgery have a number of initiatives in place to help.
SVS will host an informational session for anyone interested in starting a program from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Friday, June 14, in National Harbor 4. Most of the session will be interactive, with experienced program directors offering participants useful information and practical advice.
