Traveling for Care?
Whether you're crossing the country or the globe, we make it easy to access world-class care at Johns Hopkins.
Alumni from the program include scores of faculty members at all ranks in academic Cardiology Divisions throughout the country, many now holding Director positions in various departments, as well as basic science trainees who have gone on to establish their own independent research as clinical or non-clinical faculty.
We conduct research that spans basic molecular biology, genetics and cell science of the heart and vessels through and including clinical studies and population science focusing on epidemiology, outcomes research and health care policy.
Our faculty has a long history of collaboration, integrating multiple disciplines to achieve a common research goal. Trainees benefit from this environment, engaging in projects that typically bridge different areas of scientific inquiry. The more than 80 faculty members represent the Johns Hopkins Division of Cardiology, as well as faculty from:
The training program funds 11 post-doctoral fellows providing salary support for from one to three consecutive years of dedicated research, with one to two years as the norm. All candidates for the program must be United States citizens or permanent residents of the United States. The candidate pool is divided between post-doctoral clinical MD or MD-PhD fellows who are admitted to the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Cardiology training fellowship, and individuals who apply or are recruited from outside institutions with PhD (or MD- PhD) degrees, but who are not involved with the clinical cardiology training. Both groups engage in a broad range of research endeavors, as well as receiving mentoring from senior researchers and primary investigators.
