Vascular Surgery Residency
The Division of Vascular Surgery at the Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center has had long history of training vascular surgery fellows for past few decades. In October 2009, RRC approved our institution for an Integrated Vascular Surgery Residency. This five-year comprehensive clinical training program in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery matches medical students directly into Vascular training. Twenty-four months of General Surgery and 36 months of Vascular Surgery are incorporated over the five years. The program is based at Milton S. Hershey Medical Center with electives available to rotate with Division faculty at Mount Nittany Medical Center. A complete schedule of didactic sessions and clinical conferences supplements the patient care and research activities of the Vascular Surgery Service. One trainee is accepted each year into the program. Since its inception, we have matched our top choice candidates every single year. Our first integrated vascular surgery resident graduated in June 2016.
The Department of Surgery offers both third-year clerkships as well as fourth-year electives and acting internships. Elective information can be found at the bottom of this page.
