The Vascular Center at the University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center has a highly experienced team of vascular healthcare professionals dedicated to teaching, and they provide a wide variety of educational opportunities for those interested in vascular disorders.
Patient Education: Each patient and their families will be provided with detailed information about their condition. This includes an explanation of all tests performed as well as strategies for continued follow-up or necessary treatments. In many cases, patients receive formal educational brochures explaining their condition and its treatments. Our staff is available anytime to answer questions patients may have about their condition or treatments they may receive. We strive to arm you with the knowledge you need to combat vascular disease and stay healthy.
Community Education: Through programs like our community vascular screening program, we pursue an active outreach to our local and regional community. At these programs all participants receive educational materials that provide detailed information about major vascular problems as well as their diagnosis and treatments. Whenever possible we partner with community-based groups to provide the continuing educational opportunities they desire.
Education of Medical Professionals: Our vascular surgery staff are nationally recognized experts in their field and are sought after educators. They participate regularly in local, regional, and national conferences to provide the highest level of vascular education for other physicians interested in vascular disorders. Our nursing staff hold leadership positions in the major national organizations, including the Society for Vascular Nursing, that design and provide continuing vascular education to nurses and other healthcare professionals.
Training Vascular Surgeon Specialists: Our physicians are faculty members at the University of Maryland where they have served as leaders in the Division of Vascular Surgery at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. They have developed a specialty vascular surgery training program allowing surgeons from all over the country to come to our Center to learn about vascular disease and its treatments.
