Abstract

Vascular training includes both residency (“0+5”) and post-residency fellowship (“5+2”) programs. Training models potentially influence attitudes toward graduates as prospective hires, but previous survey studies have focused on academic surgeons. We surveyed community surgeons to explore their perceptions of 0+5 versus 5+2 graduates.
