Preventive Cardiology:
Postdoctoral Training

The postdoctoral training program in Preventive Cardiology is designed to train doctorally-trained clinicians (including persons with a PhD in a health-related discipline) in the skills necessary for independent research in preventive cardiology. Fellows complete the MS-CLI program, participate in seminars, workshops, and a journal club for fellows, as well as conduct a mentored research project.

The training program is funded by the National Heart, Blood, and Lung Institute. This fellowship pays an annual stipend based on the individual's number of years of relevant experience or prior training. In addition, funds are available to cover tuition, travel, and research-related expenses. The length of the training program varies depending on the needs and prior training of each individual, but support is available for up to two years.

Application Process:

Fellowship candidates must hold a MD, PhD, or equivalent degree and must also be a US citizen or permanent resident. We are seeking applicants with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. Members of under-represented minority groups are encouraged to apply.
