Because vascular problems are so common in primary care practices, the UC Davis Vascular Center maintains close ties with primary care providers, both within UC Davis Health System and throughout the Sacramento region. The vascular disease specialty care provided at UC Davis Medical Center complements the care provided by patients' primary care providers. The Vascular Center often provides telephone or telemedicine consultations to assist providers in ensuring their patients get the medical care they need. Vascular care guidelines developed for primary care providers are resources that help to identify when specialty care is needed.

UC Davis vascular physicians also participate in professional education activities with primary care providers. In addition to participating in health system-wide efforts to develop care pathways for patients with vascular disease, the vascular faculty participate in a variety of other educational programs, including presenting grand rounds for the Department of Family and Community Medicine, providing lectures on vascular topics to UC Davis primary-care physicians, and participating in educational conferences throughout the region.
