How to Apply

Coronavirus and the Fellowship application process

Our Division continuously monitors the CDC and WHO for guidance to make the vascular surgery fellowship interview process safe, practical, and fair while under the restriction of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have endorsed the recommendations of the Coalition of Physician Accountability that requires that all interviews be conducted virtually.
