Now Accepting Applications: Submission Deadline: April 1, 2018
The goal of our training program is to offer a multidisciplinary training program to provide fellows basic, clinical, population and translational research experience. In addition we provide individuals with training to perform research on cardiovascular disease in women with an overall appreciation of the sex-specific care and issues related to adverse pregnancy outcomes and cardiovascular disease in women across their life span. We have recruited one clinical fellow (an obstetrical fellow in our Maternal-Fetal Medicine Training Program), an epidemiologist and a basic scientist. Click here to meet the fellows.
Our program examines the impact of pregnancy and pregnancy outcomes on women’s subsequent risk and responsible mechanisms for hypertension, cardiometabolic disorders and heart disease with clinical, basic and population strategies. The role of the placenta in these mechanisms is a topic of intense interest. The training duration is two years, with training opportunities for MDs, and PhD trained basic scientists and epidemiologists. Fellows receive a competitive stipend in a rich educational and training environment. As the Magee Center is one of five centers comprising the American Heart Association Go Red for Women Research Network, the fellows will be afforded excellent opportunities for collaboration with the other centers in the Network (Columbia University, Johns Hopkins University, New York University and University of California San Diego).
