The Vascular Surgery Residency at Baylor College of Medicine is an ACGME-approved two-year program leading to eligibility for the Certificate of Special Qualifications in Vascular Surgery granted by the American Board of Surgery. Two residents are accepted annually through the National Resident Matching Program.
The mission of our vascular surgery resident is to provide comprehensive training in the care of vascular patients with both open surgical and catheter-based endoluminal therapy. The resident trainees work in an environment that emphasizes clinical excellence.
This training program includes a broad clinical experience in all aspects of vascular surgery, including carotid occlusive disease, complex aortic aneurysm, visceral vessel disease, lower extremity occlusive disease, dialysis access management, as well as endovascular treatment using cutting-edge devices.
Baylor has been a leader in the field of vascular surgery for the past six decades with a remarkable heritage. Drs. Michael DeBakey and Stanley Crawford established the Baylor Vascular Surgery Residency in 1970. Since then, this has become one of the premier vascular surgery training programs in the country. Over the past four decades, more than 120 vascular surgeons from the United States and other countries have completed our training program and have become leaders in vascular surgery around the world. Our recent graduates have been successful in establishing clinical careers of their choice, including academic and community-based practices.
Faculty physicians in our Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy are recognized as experts in open surgical reconstructions as well as catheter-based interventions. We are committed to provide the best training environment to prepare the next generation of vascular surgeons to meet the highest standards of excellence.
