University of British Columbia - Vascular Surgery - Vancouver
Strengths of the UBC Vascular Program include the faculty, clinical resources, and an atmosphere of collegiality, cooperation and excellence.
Vascular Surgery and Endovascular rotations are based at Vancouver General Hospital (7 vascular surgeons) and St. Paul's Hospital (3 vascular surgeons), Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria (4 vascular surgeons) and Kelowna General Hospital (4 vascular surgeons). The surgeons have an excellent, award-winning record for delivering enthusiastic, quality education. In addition, given the size of the Division, all areas of vascular surgery are well represented in the training program. This includes open and endovascular treatment of aortic and other aneurysms, peripheral arterial and venous disease. Surgeons perform both endovascular and open procedures. Excellent relationships exist with interventional radiology, cardiology, neurology, nephrology and anesthesiology.
Elective opportunities at other academic sites in British Columbia can be arranged. Our residents have also pursued electives elsewhere in Canada and the United States.
Opportunities for research exist in clinical outcomes, collaborative translation and education.
