Training and Career Development
One of three cores that support the Center, the Training Core, facilitates the interaction of trainees and faculty to achieve the following goals:
- To offer training in cardiovascular health disparities research
- To provide mentoring from senior faculty
- To provide funds to support trainees research projects and salary support for faculty fellows
We devote considerable time and resources to training the next generation of cardiovascular health disparities researchers to ensure a lasting legacy for the work of our Center. We provide opportunities to those seeking training in cardiovascular disparities research at all levels of experience, from undergraduates all the way to senior faculty.
We’re very proud of the trainees that have been part of our programs. Twenty-seven trainees have been accepted into our various programs since 2010. Already several alumni have gone on to prestigious fellowships and two have obtained academic positions to conduct disparities research. All three faculty trainees have obtained federal and private funding to conduct health disparities research.
We invite you to use the links on the left to explore our training programs. You’ll also find links to the program applications on the relevant pages.
