S2 Open to Visitors

Courses      Clerkships

This intensive sub-internship provides a focused study of disease processes of modern vascular surgery. This includes problems related to lower extremity occlusive disease, arterial aneurysms, cerebrovascular problems, and venous disorders. There is a special emphasis on preoperative patient assessment both clinically and radiographically. The student will be exposed to the management of vascular patients by both traditional open techniques and cutting edge minimally-invasive endovascular routes. Extensive operative experience in the hybrid operating room and the angiography suite is provided. Procedures include diagnostic arteriography, arterial and venous reconstruction, aortic endografting, limb salvage, carotid interventions, and other advanced catheter-based interventions. The student will be an integral part of the vascular surgery service and work alongside interns, vascular surgery residents, and the vascular fellows. Weekly attendance at surgical and multidisciplinary conferences at SUMC is required. Note for visiting students: this course is principally directed at students who are seriously considering a career in vascular surgery and will be applying for integrated vascular surgery residency.
