Vascular Surgery Conferences

The University of Michigan offers a broad and comprehensive curriculum to our integrated vascular residents and fellows as outlined below:

Morning Teaching Conference (junior residents/students) Twice weekly
*Vascular Surgery Case Conference Twice monthly
Vascular Journal Club Every other month
Vascular Surgery Morbidity and Mortality Conference Twice monthly (alternating with Surgery Death and Complications Conference)
**Vascular Surgery Conference Curriculum 3 hours weekly
Department of Surgery Grand Rounds Monthly

*Vascular Surgery Case Conference: Occurs twice monthly and features a primarily resident- and fellow-run case conference highlighting 4-5 vascular cases with indicated literature review. The case presentation incorporates the interpretation of imaging (including vascular ultrasound) and employs the ‘Socratic method’. This conference is routinely cited as ‘excellent preparation for oral boards’ and offers level-appropriate learning for everyone (ranging from students to junior faculty).

**Every week residents and fellows have 3 hours of protected time dedicated to our comprehensive vascular surgery curriculum. This curriculum has continued to evolve and includes faculty-drive core vascular surgery didactics, sessions directed toward ‘residents as teachers’, academic and professional development sessions, device-based training and practical sessions, open and endovascular simulation exercises, quality improvement, and newly added mock oral-exam sessions.
