Detroit Cardiovascular Training Program

Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of mortality in the United States. Understanding the physiology and pathology of the heart and circulation is the foundation for improving the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Wayne State University has an outstanding track record in providing extensive training in the cardiovascular sciences and an exceptional record in the training of minority students in the Detroit metropolitan area, contributing a major role in research education in the region. The Detroit Cardiovascular Training Program will develop a new generation of scientists who will not only pursue cardiovascular research to improve health care, but also strengthen our economic base by innovations that will be translated to medical practice.
