As the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted medical student education across the country affecting the 2020-2021 application cycle, the Association of Program Directors in Vascular Surgery issued a statement earlier this year that prioritizes:
- The health and safety of medical students, patients, our colleagues and our communities
- The promotion of an equitable and transparent application, interview and match process
- The safeguarding of the vascular surgical education of medical students
The University of Michigan Vascular Surgery training programs are committed to heading these recommendations. As a result, we will not be offering visiting sub-internships to any student and we will continue to discourage University of Michigan medical students from pursuing away rotations. We will offer virtual interviews for the 2020-21 integrated residency and fellowship application cycle.
