During vascular surgery shadowing you will follow Steven Ruby MD. Dr. Ruby is a vascular surgeon with an extensive background in the field. He attended Brandeis University as an undergraduate, followed by Columbia University for his medical degree. Afterwards, Dr. Ruby trained in general surgery at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center and Vascular Surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School.

Much of Dr. Ruby’s career has been spent in leadership roles, including positions as program director of the University of Connecticut School of Medicine’s Integrated Residency in General Surgery and chair of the admissions committee at the University of Connecticut. He has also served as Chairman of the Department of Surgery at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center.

Dr. Ruby has experience in vascular surgery in both the academic and private practice realms, and has been on the leadership council of the New England Society for Vascular Surgery. On top of these pursuits, Dr. Ruby enjoys spending time with his family and mentoring students applying to medical school.

With vascular surgery shadowing through the Virtual Clinical Education Series you will learn about the daily life of an anesthesiologist, and earn a Certificate of Completion that you’ll be able to add to your medical school application and resume. By the end of the session with Dr. Ruby you will be able to answer questions, such as:
  • What does an Integrated Vascular Training program comprise?
  • What percentage of vascular fellows are women?
  • What are risk factors for atherosclerosis?
  • What size abdominal aortic aneurysm needs to be repaired?
  • What modalities are used to diagnose vascular disease.
