Vascular Surgery Scientist Training

The Vascular Surgery Scientist Training Program at Northwestern University is a two-year mentored research training experience for surgical residents (MD/DO) in general and vascular surgery and for PhD postdoctoral research fellows interested in vascular biology or vascular biomedical engineering careers, funded by a T32 grant from NIH. The T32 mechanism provides a stipend, tuition, fees for coursework, travel funds, and health insurance.

The key to this program is an individualized training plan developed by the mentor and trainee. The unique multidisciplinary environment provides trainees with opportunities to work with mentors from different disciplines. Our goal is to provide a seamless multidisciplinary environment in which the trainee may interact with a diverse group of distinguished research faculty. Trainees may select one of several tracks of study or a combination of tracks:
