Harvard-Longwood Research Training in Vascular Surgery

This training program, the Harvard-Longwood Research Training in Vascular Surgery program, currently in its 26th year is designed to provide two years of intense basic and outcomes research training in vascular surgery for academic clinicians.

Trainees carry out their research projects under the guidance of a faculty advisor, selected from 20 renowned vascular researchers based at Harvard Medical School hospitals: the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women's, Children's Hospital, the Joslin Diabetes Institute, The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Laboratory training is supplemented by graduate level training at Harvard Medical School and Harvard's Faculty of Arts and Sciences, with course selection complementing laboratory endeavors.

Applicants should be US citizens or permanent residents who are resident physicians. Most will have completed either two or three years of surgical residency or five years of clinical training (i.e. are board eligible). Only those applicants with career goals in academic surgery, with a keen interest in basic research in vascular surgery, will be compatible. Candidates pursuing a fellowship during a program of clinical training must provide evidence that they will be accepted back into that program upon completion of their research training. 

Selection is based on merit only, without bias to gender, sexual orientation, race, color, or ethnic origin.
