Welcome to Our Vascular Surgery Fellowship - McLaren Flint/MSU Program

  • A Message from the Program Director
    Mark Mattos, MD

    Vascular fellows are responsible for the full management of the vascular service line at each of the integrated clinical sites. Clinical rotations include each hospital as well as the Michigan Vascular Center office sites including office clinic, non-invasive vascular lab, hemodialysis access center and VeinSolutions (TM). Fellows receive training in noninvasive vascular laboratory techniques and study interpretation in an IAC certified noninvasive vascular laboratory to ensure that they are properly prepared to sit for and successfully pass the Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation Exam (RPVI). The fellows are provided instruction on practice development and office management which includes billing, documentation and vascular registry maintenance. Clinical research opportunities are provided and supported and a yearly research project will be required. Clinical and operative expertise is acquired through a multitude of clinical experiences including carotid stenting, fenestrated aortic endovascular graft placement, new biological dialysis access graft placement, and typical various open and endovascular arterial revascularization procedures. Acquisition of knowledge will be through participation in weekly didactic conferences, clinical lectures, clinical patient rounds, journal clubs and independent study. Acquisition of technical skills includes both open vascular skills and endovascular simulation training as well as the supervised performance of surgical and endovascular cases appropriate to the level of training. Upon completion of the fellowship, our graduating vascular fellows are expected to be fully competent and confident vascular surgeons ready to begin either a private or academic practice in vascular surgery. Furthermore, the graduating fellows are fully prepared to pass the vascular surgery qualifying and certifying examinations. Our current first-time pass rate is 100%.
