Abstract: Vascular and endovascular surgery has undergone a period of extraordinary change during the last 20 years. This is in part due to changes in patient profiles, the development of new, potent drugs and the technological advances in imaging and interventional products. These changes have effectively resulted in the development of an independent specialty, which has needed to define the competencies required for specialist recognition and credentialing. This paper discusses the key aspects of contemporary training in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, and raises the possibility of developing an agreed core international curriculum.
