Vascular Team Talk is back with our second episode! This podcast mini-series is brought to you by the Society of Vascular Surgery Physician Assistant Section and Audible Bleeding. How does your Vascular team communicate or organize the day? Teams can consist of many people who have different responsibilities and due to the busy nature of vascular surgery services, it may be difficult to ensure urgent matters get passed on. In this episode, we focus on the importance of communication and relationships between vascular surgery students, residents, APPs, fellows and attendings.
Jessica Fernandes, PA-C, a Vascular Surgery physician assistant at Boston Medical Center (BMC), interviews Dr. Katie Shean, a vascular surgeon at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center, regarding the importance of communication and the transition from a fellowship to an attending position. Both Jessica and Dr. Shean discuss how they worked together at BMC and compare how Dr. Shean runs her current vascular team at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center.
