We are excited to interview the editors of the newly released textbook, Vascular Decision Making: Medical, Endovascular and Surgical.

Today, we have the first in a two-part series of episodes that we are developing in conjunction with the Association of Program Directors in Vascular Surgery and the Behind the Knife podcast on the reasons why one should pursue a career in Vascular Surgery
Dr. Brigitte Smith, assistant professor of surgery in the Division of Vascular Surgery at the University of Utah, joins us to discuss how we can innovate in the areas of quality and safety education for our vascular surgery trainees.
In this second episode from our series on race and representation in medicine, we focus on the challenges of recruitment and retention of racial and ethnic minority groups that are underrepresented in medicine (URM) to vascular surgery. We are very pleased to have with us a number of guests at different levels of training to discuss their experiences and insights.
We have a special announcement for our third year medical students out there thinking about Vascular Surgery as a career choice. Joining us today is Dr. David Rigberg, Program Director for the Vascular Surgery Integrated Residency and Fellowship at UCLA and Chair of the Resident and Student Outreach Committee (RSOC) of the Society for Vascular Surgery.
This episode was recorded prior to the COVID-19 pandemic as part of our collaborative series with the Society for Vascular Surgery Young Surgeons Advisory Committee. Nicole Rich and Sharif Ellozy talk with Dr. Misty Humphries and Dr. Gregory Magee about what they did, or wish they had done, during training to help them establish their practices as young vascular surgeons.
