UC Irvine Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery provides a rich educational environment for medical students, surgical residents, and fellows. Our full-time teaching faculty members are highly-experienced clinicians committed to our residents’ and students’ success. The division offers educational opportunities through its clerkship, residency, specialty conference and grand rounds programs.

Our month-long clerkship gives medical students a strong background in the fundamentals of vascular and endovascular surgery, including how to examine, diagnose and treat patients with vascular disorders. As an integral part of the fully accredited five-year general surgery residency program, the division provides residents with subspecialty training in vascular and endovascular surgery. The division utilizes the facilities of UC Irvine Medical Center and the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Long Beach. In addition, the division hosts a weekly vascular and endovascular preoperative consensus and outcomes conference, attended by faculty, residents, medical students and community surgeons.

The Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery is proud to offer a 2-year ACGME accredited fellowship. Our goal to train exemplary clinical leaders in the field of vascular surgery.  The  fellowship is a comprehensive, integrated program with excellent training opportunities in the full spectrum of vascular disease management including aortic, peripheral, renal, visceral, and cerebrovascular disorders.  The fellow’s time will be equally split between the UCI Medical Center and the Long Beach Veterans Affairs Healthcare System.   Fellows will have extensive training in complex minimally invasive endovascular and traditional open vascular surgical procedures. Trainees will be encouraged to conduct translational and patient outcomes-based research and become proficient in performing and interpreting non-invasive vascular laboratory studies.  Funding support to attend national conferences and training programs is provided.  Applicants will apply through ERAS and go through the NRMP match. Prospective applicants can email fellowship coordinator, Christina Wu at with any questions. 

UC Irvine’s Douglas Hospital features hybrid operating rooms, which facilitate advanced post-graduate educational training opportunities in leading edge vascular and endovascular techniques.
