Abstract Vascular surgery has undergone a minimally invasive revolution in the past 15 years. The subspecialty emerged with many changes to its training paradigms that have made this field more attractive to both medical student and general surgery resident candidates. Commitment to diagnosis and treatment of arterial, venous, and lymphatic systems disorders remains the cornerstone of this profession, but an entirely new generation of endovascular treatments has been added to the staple of open surgical procedures used to treat these diseases. A wide variety of practice options are available, ranging from high-stress, technologically demanding complex arterial repairs to low-risk, outpatient, venous insufficiency treatment and all combinations in-between. Many online resources are available to allow an interested candidate to stay current with all the exciting changes in the field. This information is maintained by strong national organizations of vascular surgeons.
