Training in Vascular Medicine for Vascular Surgeons-What Is It and How Will We Accomplish It?
Seminars in Vascular Surgery
The goal of vascular surgery training program should be the training of a complete vascular surgeon proficient not only in the management of established peripheral vascular disease but also in the prevention of the atherosclerotic process through management of risk factors. In addition, vascular surgeons should develop expertise in the treatment of nonatherosclerotic arterial disease, nonoperative management of acute and chronic venous disease, lymphedema, and the treatment of various coagulation disorders. To accomplish these goals, we should establish a comprehensive, patient-centered vascular medicine curriculum and appropriate methods for its implementation. © 2006 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
