The Department of Surgery, Division of Vascular Surgery at the University of Florida is currently recruiting an academic vascular surgeon to join the faculty and work at the Malcolm Randall Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Gainesville, Florida. The academic medical center at the University of Florida College of Medicine and UF Health Shands Hospital is the state’s tertiary care referral center.
The vascular surgeon will practice at the Malcolm Randall VA Medical Center (VAMC), located adjacent to UF Health Shands Hospital.

The Division has a very competitive Vascular Fellowship (5+2) with two trainees per year.
The Division has a solid infrastructure for clinical and basic science research. The research efforts have paralleled the clinical practice, focusing on treatment paradigms and outcomes after aortic interventions, lower extremity occlusive disease, dialysis access, mesenteric ischemia and “tertiary care”. The infrastructure includes four research coordinators dedicated to clinical trials, quality improvement, and translational research. The group has been an active participant in a number of device-related industry trials, and maintains a nice working relationship with the major device companies. The Division has also been an active participant in the Vascular Quality Initiative and has taken a leadership role in the region.
