Didactic Research Curriculum
The Boston University Clinical Research Training (CREST) Program (K30 HL04124) provides the primary didactic curriculum for the Boston University Medical Center Leadership Program in Vascular Medicine. By entering the Vascular Medicine Fellows into CREST, we take advantage of an extremely strong and well-established training program that was established at the Boston University Medical Campus in 1999. The Vascular Medicine Fellows participate in the didactic programs and obtain an advanced degree over a two-year period. A mentored research project is a required element of CREST, and the Vascular Medicine fellows will fulfill this requirement by completing an original research project in the field of vascular medicine under the direction of one of the Vascular Medicine Research Mentors.
