Reed Named Leader of Vascular Surgery Training Program

Published June 2003

The UC Department of Surgery has named Amy Reed, MD, program director of its vascular surgery fellowship program. Dr. Reed has been with the UC Department of Surgery since July 2002, when she was named assistant professor of surgery in the Division of Vascular Surgery. As program director of the vascular surgery fellowship program-one of approximately 20 accredited two-year vascular surgery training programs in the country-Dr. Reed will direct the training of the fellows and recruit applicants for the fellowship program.

"Our vascular surgery fellowship program is one of the premier programs in the country for endovascular, or minimally invasive techniques," said Jeffrey Matthews, MD, chairman of the UC Department of Surgery. "Additionally, Dr. Reed will continue the division's work to train surgeons and develop new techniques to treat atherosclerosis, or the hardening of the arteries, which reduces blood flow through the body and is a leading cause of strokes and heart attacks."

Dr. Reed received her medical degree from the University of Wisconsin. She completed a general surgery residency and vascular surgery fellowship at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston and an elective venous surgery fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. Dr. Reed is board certified in General Surgery and Vascular Surgery by the American Board of Surgery.

"Dr. Reed is an excellent vascular surgeon who will do a great job leading our fellowship program and expanding our expertise and training in endovascular surgery," said John Edwards, MD, chief of the Division of Vascular Surgery at UC. "Additionally, as the only woman in the country to lead a vascular surgery training program, Dr. Reed will boost our efforts to attract more women to the program."
