Application Process


We sincerely appreciate your interest in the Vascular Surgery Integrated Residency Program at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.

Applications will be reviewed in their entirety through a wholistic committee process. One vascular resident is chosen yearly in the match sponsored by the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). All applicants must register with the NRMP match to be considered. Applications and all supporting materials should be entered on the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS) sponsored by the AAMC.

ERAS application requirements are as follows:

  1. 3 Clinical or Research Faculty Letters of Recommendation, one should be from a vascular surgeon
  2. Dean's Letter (submitted by Medical Schools)
  3. CV
  4. Personal statement

The Department of Surgery, along with the Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, are firmly committed to training surgical leaders for future generations. Recruitment of underrepresented minorities to our training programs is a vital factor for increasing racial diversity in the physician workforce. This is a high priority for the Division of Vascular Surgery as well as the University of Colorado.

If you have questions regarding the application process, please contact the Fellowship Coordinator, Trina Smidt, at (303) 724-9251 or by e-mail (see below). Thank you for your interest in our program.
