  10. Develop Excellence in: Routine and complex open vascular surgery Diagnostic arteriography Endovascular intervention of aneurysmal and occlusive disease Interpretation of non-invasive vascular laboratory studies and their limitations Clinical research project with faculty mentor Vascular Surgery Fellowship Goals

  11. Competency in the basic science and clinical curriculum* Competency as a teacher Compliance with the 80-hour work week Management of the weekly teaching and indication conferences and monthly Journal Club Vascular Surgery Fellowship Goals *

  12. APDVS curriculum online with references Written Curriculum Goals and Educational Objectives September UCLA Vascular Review Course, first year Selected topics presented weekly by residents, faculty, and invited speakers at Vascular Conference Files with selected references in hard copy filed in resident’s office VSEP exam in Fall to direct your reading; Vascular Surgery Inservice Exam in February. Curriculum

  13. Daily rounds Non-invasive vascular lab Diagnostic arteriography and endovascular interventions Venous disease rotation Arterio-venous access rotation Clinical research and critical thinking Structure of First Year

  14. Non-invasive Vascular Lab • Daily reading at the VA and on a rotational basis at the University Hospital • One-half day per week hands-on in the lab first six months • Didactic lectures on CD • Gain a complete understanding of the indications, interpretation and limitations of each test • Prepared to pass ARDMS examination during second year of residency

  15. Endovascular Interventions • Preoperative evaluation of the patient • Developing a therapeutic plan of endovascular intervention, in consultation and input of the faculty • Performance of the endovascular intervention, and follow up of the patient • Responsible for endovascular procedures in the UW Cath lab, and VA OR. • Participate in weekly VA clinic and indications conferences and monthly endovascular Q&A conferences; quarterly city-wide endovascular forum dinner meeting

  16. Venous Disease Rotation • One month rotation at Meriter Hospital • Rotate into venous clinic • Office-based and hospital operating room-based interventions • Minimally invasive techniques, and the postoperative care of patients with venous disorders

  17. Arterio-Venous Access Clinic • Pre-operative and post operative care of patients requiring complex venous access surgery • AV access endovascular procedures with Dr. Alex Yevzlin, interventional nephrologists • Yolanda Becker’s clinic PRN

  18. Clinical Research and Critical Thinking • The first-year resident will be enrolled in two classes: • 1. Biostatistics and Medical Informatics • 2. Introduction To Clinical Trials • Prepare the resident for the design, implementation, and conduct of clinical trials • Assigned research mentor • Database manager • Section will cover meeting costs for presentation • Weekly didactic lecture, monthly Journal Club

  19. Clinical Coverage in First Year • Call is from home, backing up an intern who is on in-house first call • Approximately every third night during the week and every other weekend call and rounding responsibilities • First-year vascular fellow rounds with the UW Hospital Service daily • Cover of clinical services when second-year vascular resident or the VA PGY-4 out on vacation (6 weeks) • Optional participation in basic science vascular lab/meetings • The first-year vascular fellow will act as a consultant for the PGY-4, and will be responsible for many percutaneous and open VA endovascular cases if scheduling permits.

  20. Second-year vascular fellow runs UW vascular service; general surgery PGY-4 runs the VA vascular service. UW Service PGY-3, PGY-1 and two nurse practitioners Clinic on Wednesdays at VA; Dr. Kent has clinic Monday afternoons in the UW Hospital OR #5, 7:30 a.m. starts (two on Tuesday) Endovascular experience in operating room and periodically in cath lab (Wednesday mornings) Second Year of Training

  21. VA Service General Surgery PGY-4, PGY-1, PGY-3 and VA NP Clinic on Wednesdays at VA OR #4, 7:30 a.m. starts Endovascular experience in OR, OEC 9800. New construction of an Operating Room VA angio suite to begin Fall 2009. The first-year vascular fellow will act as a consultant for the PGY-4, and will be responsible for most percutaneous and open VA endovascular cases. Second Year of Training

  22. Second Year of Training • Call: • Approximately every third night from home during the week, backing up the intern who is in house. The general surgery night float admits vascular patients from the ER. • The vascular faculty member on call backs up the PGY-3 when they are on first call • The vascular fellows are on call and have rounding duties every other weekend • When the PGY-3 is on weekend first call, the faculty will not call in the fellow except for “index” cases, allowing greater vascular exposure for the PGY-3

  23. Weekly Wednesday Teaching Conference 30-minute didactic lecture by vascular and guest faculty members PGY-4 and PGY-3 give one didactic lecture during 10-week rotation Vascular fellows each give a didactic lecture every eight weeks Morbidity/Mortality Weekly 1-2 interesting cases if time allows Weekly Thursday Vascular Indications Conference Pre-operative presentation of patients requiring endovascular and open procedures Two vascular fellows and VA PGY-4 present with faculty. Monthly Journal Club Monthly Endovascular Q&A Quarterly City-wide Endovascular Forum Conferences / Teaching

  25.
