The faculty of the vascular division provides lectures and instruction for third-year medical students rotating through surgery, as well as intramural lectures for faculty and trainees in other departments. Moreover, the faculty members provide cognitive, patient care, and operative skills training for general surgical trainees. The Division created a program that included vascular division faculty and national leaders in vascular surgery from other institutions to strengthen the coverage of vascular issues in the Department of Surgery Grand Rounds. This exciting and successful program welcomes and enjoys the participation of vascular surgeons practicing at hospitals throughout Kentuckiana.
Lectures delivered to the medical students are available at: www.med-u.org/virtual_patient_cases/wisemd. Each medical student that rotates on Surgery will be given a log-in at orientation. Students then can access these lectures.
The faculty in the Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapeutics provides regular lectures at the general surgery resident teaching conference Friday mornings.
Tuesday Morning Vascular Conference is held at 6:30 a.m. in the Hagan Library. These weekly teaching conferences include morbidity and mortality, presentation of interesting cases, as well as a structured discussion of opportunities for quality improvement.
