Welcome to the Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Residency Program at Cooper Medical School of Rowan University and Cooper University Hospital.
The overall goal of this residency is to provide a foundation for graduates of the program to develop into expert clinicians who are proficient in all aspects of the diagnosis, management, and treatment of vascular disease. These goals are fostered in an environment of progressively graded clinical understanding, operative experience, and responsibility. In doing so, the resident will ultimately exercise mature surgical judgment and operative skills which will prepare him or her to provide independent care to patients with vascular disease. Our faculty is enthusiastic, committed to teaching, and together has over 30 years of fellowship teaching.
The case volume at Cooper University Health Care provides ample opportunity for residents to develop and master a large breadth of vascular interventions including both open and endovascular procedures. Recent graduates have been in the 90th percentile relative to their peers for both open and endovascular aortic procedures. During their training, residents have the opportunity to use devices only available through aortic and peripheral clinical trials in addition to newly FDA approved “next generation” devices such as fenestrated endografts for the treatment of complex aortic pathology.
