Funded by a T32 grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), our research training program aims to equip post-doctoral M.D. and Ph.D. trainees with the skills necessary to be successful and productive in cardiovascular research. Interdisciplinary collaborations between clinical investigators, bench scientists, and diverse specialists are essential for translational research to have a tangible impact on clinical care. Our program addresses this need by launching surgeons and Ph.D.s on academic careers in cardiovascular research through a highly structured surgeon-scientist research experience involving day-to-day collaborations between M.D.s and Ph.D.s.
Our program is organized into three training tracks. Individual trainee curriculum and training environment will vary depending on training track (e.g., wet laboratory, bio-design or innovation studio, or an outcomes research team):
* Bioengineering and Biodesign: This track involves training and certification in the TMC Biodesign Fellowship Program and working within a multidisciplinary team to develop a medical device or digital tool.
* Basic and Translational Research: This track involves training in laboratory-based research focused on understanding and addressing cardiovascular diseases.
* Clinical and Outcomes Research: This track emphasizes developing skills in health services research or in conducting clinical trials with the ability to improve healthcare outcomes in cardiovascular disease.
In each track, didactic training or completion of advanced degrees is fully optional and will be individualized per trainee. Trainees in the Clinical and Outcomes Research track may enter The University of Texas School of Public Health program for a master’s degree, or they may join the [ Clinical Scientist Training Program (CTSP)] at Baylor College of Medicine and complete their degree program in clinical investigations. Trainees in the Basic and Translational Research Track may opt to complete a certificate or degree program from the [ CTSP] or to take a graduate-level course at BCM, Rice University, or the University of Houston.
