Vascular Medicine Fellowship Programs
Vascular diseases constitute one of the most common reasons for individuals to require medical care in the United States and represent a wide spectrum of conditions and syndromes involving the arteries, veins, lymphatics, and the circulating blood. There is a growing need for specialists with specific proficiency in the medical management of these disorders. Spearheaded by the late Jay Coffman, MD, Boston University has a long tradition of research and clinical expertise in vascular medicine. Building on this tradition, we have developed a three-year fellowship training program in vascular medicine entitled the Boston University Medical Center Leadership Program in Vascular Medicine. The program has been funded by the National Institutes of Health as a K12 Award and combines one year of clinical training and two years of research training. The clinical training is designed to assure that trainees are competent in all aspects of clinical vascular medicine. The academic program is designed to provide additional comprehensive research training with didactic training and a mentored research experience. Our overall goal is to train academic leaders in the field of vascular medicine.
