The University of Wisconsin Vascular Surgery Research Training Program, funded by a T32 grant from the NIH (NHLBI), is a multidisciplinary and collaborative program that will train young physician/surgeons who have chosen to be vascular specialists, along with PhD scientists who have a research interest in vascular disease. The goal is to accelerate the performance of basic, translational and clinical research for vascular disease by producing future surgeons, scientists and engineers who will meet the great need for innovation in treatments for the growing population of patients.

The program will provide trainees with multiple opportunities for research activities and will foster the development of knowledge, competence, skills, professional attitude, and experience required for successful academic careers in independent NIH-funded research.

This program offers a two-year research opportunity including laboratory training in basic, translational, or clinical outcomes research in vascular disease. The training program comprises over 20 MD and/or PhD faculty from the University of Wisconsin and emphasizes multidisciplinary studies in vascular biology, drug delivery, and outcomes and health services research. 

Surgical residents as well as recent PhD graduates with basic training in disciplines related to vascular disease are encouraged to apply. US citizenship or permanent residency is required. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, persons with disabilities, and women are encouraged to apply to NIH-funded research opportunities.
