The Department of Surgery at Good Samaritan Hospital has a long and illustrious history of international acclaim as a center for advanced vascular surgery. In 1952 a budding vascular surgeon by the name of John J. Cranley established a laboratory in his private office, and started conducting pioneering research in vascular surgery. His discoveries brought both himself and the department of surgery intercontinental recognition, culminating in Good Samaritan Hospital offering him space and facilities for the development of a laboratory, which he developed into the first completely dedicated surgically oriented vascular laboratory in the nation in 1959.
The Vascular Surgery Residency Program at Good Samaritan Hospital provides a unique vascular surgery experience in a private hospital setting. Residents learn from board-certified vascular surgeons with extensive experience in both open vascular and endovascular surgery. Each year more than 15,000 major surgical procedures are performed in the hospital's 23 operating rooms, including dedicated endovascular hybrid suites, and on average each vascular resident will perform close to 200 open index vascular operations and more than 400 therapeutic and 300 diagnostic endovascular procedures.
Our integrated 0 + 5 program offers residents the unique opportunity to devote two years to core surgical training and three years to vascular surgery. Graduates of our vascular surgery residency program have superb pass rates on the American Board of Surgery Vascular Exam and are extremely well prepared for a career in vascular and endovascular surgery.
This year we are interviewing multiple candidates for our incoming 0&5 vascular surgery residency program.
