The Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery at Mayo Clinic’s campus in Rochester, Minnesota, offer a five-year integrated residency program in a collegial learning environment. Our emphasis is on surgical skills training, academic career opportunities, individual mentoring, and a curated didactic experience. Vascular integrated residents train with all six vascular surgeons at the Rochester campus and multiple subspecialty services who work collaboratively in a group practice covering all facets of vascular surgery.

Our program focuses on establishing clinical and technical confidence and maximizes opportunities for personal achievement in a supportive, inclusive, and academically rewarding environment.

I was amazed by the volume and complexity of cases at Mayo Clinic, and the autonomy afforded to the residents and fellows. It is truly unlike anywhere else I have seen.
