As a vascular surgery trainee at the University of Michigan, you can expect:
- A dynamic cohort: Our programs attract top candidates, which means you’ll benefit from the energy, experience, and camaraderie of your accomplished peers. At the same time, our culture is collegial and supportive, with formal mentoring experiences designed to provide guidance.
- A diverse portfolio of vascular surgery expertise: Our faculty are recognized leaders in all aspects of the discipline, from common vascular procedures to specialized practices such as complex cerebrovascular reconstructions, advanced open reconstruction of the thoracic and abdominal aorta and visceral branches, advanced endovascular procedures (including f-EVAR and branched iliac devices, SAFARI and other peripheral interventions), thoracic outlet syndrome decompressions, and pediatric vascular procedures encompassing advanced aortic reconstruction for coarctation, renal and mesenteric reconstructions for occlusive and aneurysmal disease. That means trainees also benefit from access to a uniquely diverse clinical practice and technical expertise.
- A robust research enterprise: Integrated vascular residents benefit from two years of protected time between the third and fourth clinical years to pursue academic development and research interests through our highly productive and federally funded labs. Opportunities run the gamut from basic science to translational to health services research investigating all aspects of vascular surgery, including but not exclusive of: cerebrovascular disorders, aortic aneurysm pathogenesis, ischemic reperfusion injuries, venous thrombosis resolution and vascular remodeling, computational flow analysis, immunology of wound healing, and new endovascular techniques.
Our training programs begin at the undergraduate level and extend to advanced training for vascular surgery fellows.
