Vascular Surgery at Delray Medical Center
The two-year Vascular Surgery Fellowship Program with the Charles E Schmidt College of Medicine at Florida Atlantic University was approved by the ACGME in September 2019.
The Vascular Surgery Fellowship is based at Delray Medical Center (DMC), a 536-bed hospital with over 1,600 employees. For more than 35 years, DMC has served the communities of Palm Beach County, with a population of approximately 1.5 million, as both a community hospital, Level I Trauma Center, and Comprehensive Stroke Center located on a 42-acre medical plaza.
Delray Medical Center has been the Recipient of Healthgrades® 'America's 50 Best Hospitals' Award™ for 14 Years in a Row (2007-2020) and has received countless other distinctions from other organizations such as The Joint Commission, Truven Health Analytics, American Heart Association, Healthgrades, and Leapfrog Group recognizing excellence in Vascular Surgery, Cardiovascular, Orthopedics, Neuroscience, Pulmonary, Gastrointestinal Disease, Critical Care, GYN Surgery, Bariatric Surgery, and Patient Safety. DMC offers training programs in internal medicine, emergency medicine, cardiology, surgery, hospice and palliative medicine and psychiatry.
DMC has been a TCAR national "Center of Excellence" every year since 2018, and was the first hospital in the United States to perform endovascular robotic surgery using the Corindus robot. It offers an ideal academic and clinical environment in which fellows in the vascular surgery program will train with board certified vascular surgeons in specialty areas such as endovascular robotics, minimally-invasive endovascular therapy, endovascular and surgical treatment of aortic and peripheral aneurysms, endovascular and surgical treatment of carotid/cerebrovascular disease, endovascular and surgical treatment of peripheral arterial disease (PAD), limb salvage and wound care, venous disease, and creation and maintenance of dialysis access.
