Academic institutions will benefit from establishing an office-based endovascular center (OEC) through increased patient care efficiency and satisfaction. Physicians will benefit from a more predictable schedule and better productivity. Establishing an OEC in an academic environment has significant and unique challenges requiring collaboration and approval among leaders from the department, medical school, and hospital. This will require the time, commitment, and maturity of an experienced and mature individual with a high level of administrative and interpersonal skills. The major advantages are the financial resources that are available to the university which is not seen in private practice and the lack of personal financial responsibility incurred by the academic physician. Opening an endovascular center in an academic environment is both possible and should be encouraged.
