Heart (Cardiology & Vascular)

Rotation Schedule

    Each year, the Vascular Integrated Residency and Fellowship programs matriculate one integrated and one traditional trainee. Our trainees are exposed to the full spectrum of vascular surgery clinical patient care at five sites:

    1. Montefiore Hospital (Moses Campus)
    2. Montefiore Wakefield Hospital
    3. Montefiore Hutchinson Campus
    4. Jack D. Weiler Hospital (Einstein)
    5. Jacobi Medical Center

    The first three years of our integrated program are devoted to core surgical training with additional vascular surgery exposure. In addition, vascular and endovascular residents and fellows have the opportunity to train alongside our interventional cardiology colleagues and spend time learning in our Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories (ICAVL)-accredited vascular diagnostic imaging laboratory.

    The final two years of training are exclusively devoted to vascular surgery training, as are the two fellowship/traditional years.
