• Vascular Fellowship Program

    The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC) is located in Iowa City, Iowa, USA. Iowa City is a college town of 70,000 located on both banks of the Iowa River near the intersection of the U.S. Interstate Highways of 80 and 380 in southeastern Iowa. The UIHC is a tertiary referral base for the State of Iowa and several surrounding states. Information about living in Iowa City while doing a fellowship can be found at the website for the UI Graduate Medical Education Office.

    The Vascular Surgery Section was established in the Department of Surgery in 1987 and became a Division in the Department of Surgery in 2001.

    The Division of Vascular Surgery offers a two year Vascular Fellowship program to accommodate the evolving needs for training in endovascular surgery and the noninvasive vascular laboratory. The goal of our program is to provide the trainee with a broad in-depth experience in the management of vascular diseases in the setting of a large University Hospital complex and a Veteran Administration Medical Center-Hospital complex. Our fellowship has been approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education since its inception. Our program graduates one resident trainee per year.

    Applications for Vascular Fellowships will be accepted through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). Eligible candidates for our program must have completed or be completing an approved General Surgery residency and be eligible for certification by the American Board of Surgery. Our program selects one candidate each year through the National Resident Matching Program for Specialty Training.

    Graduates of the program are eligible for the Certificate of Added Qualifications in General Vascular Surgery offered through The American Board of Surgery. Since 1988, close to twenty-four graduates of our program have obtained certification as specialty trained vascular surgeons.
