The Vascular Medicine and Intervention Fellowship Training Program at Massachusetts General Hospital is directed by Dr. Robert Schainfeld. The fellowship is composed of a one-year clinical training program.
The clinical service of the cardiac division at Massachusetts General Hospital offers over 4,000 admissions, 15,000 outpatient visits and 8,000 invasive cardiovascular procedures annually (of these roughly 400 to 500 are dedicated peripheral procedures).
The Vascular Diagnostic and Intervention Fellowship is a one-year program concentrating both on diagnosis and management of patients with peripheral vascular disease, and the performance of percutaneous peripheral vascular procedures. The program is in addition to and complementary to the ACGME-accredited Cardiovascular Disease and Interventional Cardiology fellowship programs.

The fellow must have prior cardiology fellowship training, or if arising from a surgical background, should have completed general surgical training, and be preparing for a career in vascular surgery.
A prior year of interventional coronary artery training is preferred from cardiology candidates, though this is not required of surgical candidates.
