Department and Faculty

More than 1,600 open vascular operations are performed each year at Mayo Clinic. We anticipate that each fellow will scrub more than 300 cases and perform approximately 250 to 300 major vascular reconstructions as the primary surgeon. The Division of Vascular Surgery expects fellows to operate independently in the latter portion of the training program.


In addition to caring for patients in clinical practice, Mayo Clinic's faculty is committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields. You work closely with these individuals throughout your training in the Vascular Surgery Fellowship.

Advisers and mentors

Faculty advisers are available to provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. You meet with your adviser periodically throughout the program to review your progress and career goals, and ensure that your educational needs are being met. Your adviser may serve as a contact point for introducing you and your family to the Phoenix area and the Mayo Clinic system.

Visiting professors

Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during lectures, participate in hospital rounds and have informal discussions with trainees. You are encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities.
