Integrated Vascular Surgery Residency
The Houston Methodist Integrated Vascular Surgery Residency Program of the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery is designed to train vascular surgeons so that they can provide personalized, comprehensive surgical care of the highest quality, and become eligible for the Primary Certificate in Vascular Surgery. We have a long tradition as leaders in vascular surgery through the efforts of Drs. Michael DeBakey and Stanley Crawford and are the first accredited integrated residency program in Texas. Our faculty members are recognized both locally and nationally as leaders in the field of vascular surgery,
The five-year program is designed to provide trainees with a comprehensive core surgical experience at Houston Methodist Hospital and Memorial Hermann Hospital. Residents rotate on the vascular surgery services of Houston Methodist Hospital, MD Anderson Cancer Center, and several community-based Houston Methodist hospitals. Our program offers a robust clinical volume, dedication to mentorship, and a commitment to developing consummate clinicians. Our residents are exposed to a wide variety of vascular pathologies and leave the program with a rich open and endovascular experience. Graduates are well prepared to diagnose and treat diseases of the arterial, venous, and lymphatic systems, and been successful as both academic surgeons and in busy private practices.
