Vascular Surgery Residency Program

The University of Ottawa Vascular Surgery Residency Program offers 2 streams for Royal College certification. Both are fully accredited. One stream offers a residency position starting at the PGY 1 position, the second at the PGY 6 position (2-year residency). The more senior position often attracts candidates from general surgery or cardiac surgery.

The program offers a balanced volume of comprehensive learning encounters in both open surgery and endovascular procedures .The Ottawa Hospital is the tertiary referral center for Vascular disease in Eastern Ontario and one of the largest teaching hospitals in Canada providing more than adequate patient volumes to ensure a comprehensive educational experience. The Vascular training program is one of the oldest in Canada and has a long and successful track record of training Vascular Surgeons. The surgical faculty is dedicated to ensuring trainees leave the program ready for practice. The Ottawa Hospital also runs an ICAVL accredited Vascular lab where trainees rotate through to learn the complete inventory of non invasive vascular diagnostics.
