Overview of Program
We have developed the Leadership Program in Vascular Medicine to assure that the proposed goal of training vascular medicine clinical investigators is met. The program consists of clinical training in vascular medicine and research training in clinical investigations. The clinical training is 1-year in duration in general vascular medicine (or under special circumstances endovascular medicine). The research training is 2-years in duration including multiple elements designed to assure that fellows are well-trained to conduct clinical investigations and obtain independent support necessary for an ongoing academic career. The purpose is to train the next generation of academic leaders in the continually evolving field of vascular medicine.
