Quality Fellowship In Training (FIT) Program

The SVS PSO Quality Fellowship in Training (FIT) program is for residents and fellows in vascular surgery and medicine in collaboration with APDVS.

The Fellowship in Training (FIT) program is designed to introduce residents and fellows in vascular programs to our patient safety organization (VQI/PSO). Using a mentor-directed approach, FIT applicants will work closely with their VQI mentor on participation in regional biannual meetings and review of comparative data including center level quality improvement processes.  Opportunities include engagement in quality charter development, center level QI process and research initiatives using VQI data reviewed by VQI research advisory committee (RAC). 

Advancement through the 12 to 18 month program provides the FIT applicant opportunity to present their work during VQI@VAM with potential selection for a highly coveted Jack L Cronenwett Scholarship (5 awarded annually) worth up to $10,000 to continue research and/or work more closely with VQI/PSO staff and committees. 

Meet the 2023 Participants!
