Research in vascular biology is rapidly progressing. At the same time, however, physician scientists in training have increasing competing responsibilities which they must personally attend to and time for research training has diminished. Additionally, with the aging of the population, the number of patients with vascular disease is increasing. The Vascular Surgery Training Program, with its emphasis on vascular biology, vascular pathology and a multi- disciplinary focus, aims to produce the next generation of clinician-scientist leaders who will pave the way to new discoveries in vascular biology. The program provides MD trainees with a basic science/translational science curriculum, or a health services outcomes science curriculum. A great strength of the program is the
VASCULAR SURGERY: RESEARCH TRAINING IN VASCULAR BIOLOGY
cross fertilization between the two curricula with common elements of training for both pathways. Training is centered at the new North Campus Research Complex and at the University of Michigan Samuel and Jean Frankel Cardiovascular Center.
