Colleen Flanagan, MD is an Integrated (0+5) Vascular Surgery Resident at UCSF. She graduated with honors from Tufts University with degrees in Biology and History. She then worked in a healthcare consulting firm focused on transactional and claims-based database analytics. She subsequently received her medical degree from the University of Massachusetts School of Medicine, graduating a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society, and with awards for both compassionate care and academic merit. She graduated early to work in the cardiac intensive care unit at UMass Medical Center as part of the COVID-19 Surge Staffing Response prior to starting residency at UCSF.

Dr. Flanagan has presented and published numerous projects within the scope of vascular surgery including on complex aortic pathology, carotid disease, and peripheral arterial occlusive disease. She is interested in clinical informatics, and the use of data science and machine learning to augment vascular surgery practice. Many of her research interests are population health-based and include medical optimization of vascular surgery patients, increasing appropriate vascular surgery referrals and screening, and understanding social determinants of vascular disease.
