Dr. Samra then completed two separate post-graduate fellowships, in cardiothoracic surgery as well as vascular surgery, at the Deborah Heart and Lung Center. He is board certified in both specialties. After graduation, he was named Director of the Deborah Center of Venous Disease and the Program Director of the Vascular Surgery Fellowship, where he was in charge of teaching and training many vascular surgeons over the years.
