Cardiovasology Training Program
Through four decades of mentored career development, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute-sponsored Cardiovasology Training Program has been preparing physicians and scientists for research careers in cardiovascular medicine and biology.
Integral to the activities of the Mayo Clinic Heart and Lung Research Center, the Cardiovasology Training Program provides advanced training at the vanguard of cardiovascular research. Heart failure — with a focus on translation from bench to bedside to populations — is the central theme, reflecting national morbidity and mortality trends.
The Cardiovasology Training Program assembles collaborative and complementary teams of mentors across the discovery-translation-application continuum interconnected with local, regional and national centers of excellence to ensure multidisciplinary training.
The program is customized to match the background and career path of each trainee, while also widening his or her interests and capabilities in pursuit of evolving scientific advances. A fellow-to-faculty career development program is in place to foster faculty transition.
Aligned with Mayo Clinic's strategic priorities of individualized medicine, regenerative medicine and the science of health care delivery, the program offers curricula in:
- Individualized (personalized) medicine and pharmacogenomics
- Regenerative medicine and surgery
- Systems biology and bioinformatics
- Molecular imaging
- Genetic epidemiology
- Comparative effectiveness
- Health disparities research
