Vascular Surgery Qualifying Examination
The Vascular Surgery Qualifying Examination is a computer-based test offered annually by the American Board of Surgery. The approximately 200 multiple-choice question examination is designed to assess the applicant's cognitive knowledge. The one-day, five-hour examination is held at computer-testing facilities across the United States. Results are posted and mailed approximately four weeks after the examination. For more information, visit the American Board of Surgery Web site.
Vascular Surgery In-Training Examination (VSITE)
The Vascular Surgery Board of the American Board of Surgery (VSB-ABS) offers annually to program directors the Vascular Surgery In-Training Examination (VSITE). This web-based, multiple choice examination is designed to measure the progress attained by residents in their knowledge of vascular surgery. The VSITE is solely meant to be used by program directors as an evaluation instrument in assessing residents’ progress. Results of the examination are released to program directors only. Score reports are not released to residents. The exam is not available to residents on an individual basis and is not required by the VSB-ABS for certification.
SVS VESAP 1 Vascular Education and Self-Assessment Program
VESAP 1 is specifically designed to meet the requirements of the Vascular Surgery Board’s Maintenance of Certification program. It is an invaluable aid in preparing for qualifying, certification, or recertification exams, or to simply remain current in the specialty of vascular surgery. Residents and Fellows will find it a useful study aid for their ABSITE and VSITE examinations.
