    Any route to vascular surgery residency or fellowship in the Navy?

    Just noticed there aren’t any residencies/fellowships for vascular surgery listed in the annual BUMEDNOTE 1424. Are all our vascular surgeons direct commissions or are there occasional GME opportunities? I know we had one in my Medical Battalion when I was on AD but not met another one since.
