"I was attracted to Jobst by the opportunity to train in a community setting with a broad range of surgical and endovascular cases. During my tenure, I had the opportunity to present my research at national conferences and be a first author on two papers published in peer-reviewed journals. My time at Jobst fully prepared me for the busy practice I have today in Mexico City."

"I chose to train at Jobst for a variety of reasons, including the balance of endovascular and open surgical cases and Dr. Comerota’s reputation. The emphasis on research also was attractive. During my two years at Jobst, I was able to not only meet my surgical goals but also presented my research at national and international conferences and was an author on multiple papers published in peer-reviewed journals."
