This is a T-32 training program at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine. This program is specifically designed for MDs committed to a career in cardiology and clinical cardiovascular research. The overall goal of this training program is to facilitate the career development of physician scientists seeking to use clinical and population research as a means to address important cardiovascular research questions. To accomplish this goal we provide training in clinical and population research methods, protected time and resources necessary for clinically relevant research experience, and additional professional development, networking and mentoring experiences to help trainees become productive independently funded translational cardiovascular investigators. The two-year research training program includes a thesis-based master?s degree in Clinical And Population Translational Science, participation in extramural seminars and short courses such as the NHLBI-sponsored ten-day seminar on the epidemiology and prevention of cardiovascular disease, comprehensive professional development and networking activities, and a diverse array of faculty-mentored research opportunities. The program is a scientifically relevant educationally focused training experience in an institutionally supportive environment with a program director and diverse faculty who have extensive significant research and mentoring experience.
