Our Vascular Surgery Fellowship is part of a diverse & growing service that encompasses all aspects of the specialty, with approximately 600 vascular procedures performed annually. Our fellows rotate at Loma Linda University Medical Center, and Riverside University Health System (RUHS), where they actively engage and lead medical students and residents from PGY1 – PGY3.

Fellowship Year Aug – Nov Dec - Apr May - July

Our goal is to provide our fellows with broad-based and balanced training in vascular surgery during the two-year training program. We’re committed to our fellows’ whole person development as a respected professional with good judgment and sound surgical skills.

Our training environment will be a culture based on the values of compassion, integrity, excellence, teamwork, and wholeness.
