It is a robust program whose setting is in a tertiary referral center in Plano, which has been ranked in the US News and World Report as a top hospital for cardiovascular care. This results in an experience for our fellows across a wide range of peripheral artery and venous disorders and allows for the development of expertise in an extensive range of diagnostic and therapeutic modalities. In addition, multiple clinical research studies and investigational device evaluations (IDE’s) allow for early and frequent experience with cutting-edge technologic advances within the field.
The program has a 1:4 student: faculty ratio (core faculty), in addition to collaborative work with the Cardiovascular Imaging Team, Structural Heart Team, Interventional Cardiology Team, and Vascular and Cardiovascular Surgery Team. This comprehensive approach with diverse medical specialties allows for a comprehensive training experience, allowing the fellow to develop expertise in all therapeutic modalities including medical management, catheter-based therapy and interventions. Fellows who express an interest also have the opportunity to develop expertise in Superficial venous therapy.
