Training in vascular medicine for vascular surgeons-what is it and how
will we accomplish it?Plummer D, Macsata R, Sidawy AN.

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.
