Shahram Aarabi, M.D., MPH is a California native and completed his undergraduate education at the University of California at Berkeley in Mathematics and Philosophy. He attended New York University for medical school and then moved to Seattle for surgical training.  He completed general surgery internship and residency, a fellowship in surgical critical care and trauma, and a fellowship in vascular surgery, all at the University of Washington. During his surgical training years, he obtained a Masters in Public Health from Harvard University. Dr. Aarabi is a member of the Society for Vascular Surgery.

Dr. Aarabi's research interests are in the areas of vascular trauma, public health, and surgical innovation.  He has recently been working on novel devices for the care of critically ill patients, has filed several patents related to this work at the University of Washington, and has been awarded a $1.5 million Department of Defense award for research and development of a novel limb cooling tourniquet device. 

His research plans at UCSF are to continue the development of these medical devices so that they will be able to translate to the care of critically ill patients at the bedside.  Further, Dr. Aarabi plans to continue participating in clinical collaborations with trauma-vascular surgeons nationally and internationally and to systematically study vascular trauma at high volume level 1 trauma centers such as Highland Hospital and San Francisco General Hospital.
