Angiology and vascular surgery deal with prevention, diagnosis, treatment and research of vascular diseases. In this field, resident doctors administer non-invasive medical and diagnostic therapies through imaging techniques, direct surgical treatments, endoscopies and endovascular procedures in adults and children. In the Angiology and Vascular Surgery Teaching Unit you will acquire the knowledge and experience necessary to carry out the specialisation in hospitals at any level, and where specialists have to treat the most straightforward to the most complex of issues.
Angiology training itinerary
The Angiology and Vascular Surgery Teaching Unit has one accredited position. It is part of the Angiology and Vascular Surgery Department, but General, Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery are also involved. This ensures there is an opportunity to work in multidisciplinary teams.
The specialisation is carried out in the Outpatient Clinic, in Haemodynamics, on the wards, in surgery, and in the Accident and Emergency Department. It works both in Internal Medicine and Paediatrics.
During the training period, tutors supervise residents in a progressive way. Depending on which part of the training they are in, residents may carry out preoperative diagnostics and give surgical indications during operations and for immediate postoperative care. In addition, they carry out postoperative care on the hospital wards.
Other skills you will acquire include diagnostic imaging using all available methods: ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) scans, and magnetic resonance angiography among others, in addition to using the most advanced angiography techniques and therapeutic endovascular procedures.
If you do your residency with us, you will also have the opportunity to actively participate in organizing and developing courses, to analyse the Department’s surgical outcomes, to conduct literature reviews and be up to date with the latest innovations and aspects specific to the specialisation.
Angiology residents work with scientific research methodology and are equipped to write different kinds of publications in this field. Their objectives include two publications as first author and the presentation of two papers at scientific events. It is also recommended to dedicate time to the doctoral thesis, or least to start it.
