This opportunity is for students considering a career in medical science (doctor, nurse, nurse practitioner, ultra-sonographer radiation technician, physician's assistant, medical engineer, researcher).

The American College of Cardiology's Young Scholars Program is a one-year program that will introduce budding scientists to the world of cardiology and research. Students will be paired with a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology for a dedicated year of mentorship and growth in science. Students will work directly with a mentor on a research project suited to their level of experience. The program will also include regularly scheduled webinars for students to learn more about current research in this extensive medical field.

This one-year program begins in March 2019 and will extend until March 2020. Our Young Scholars will join thousands of doctors, nurses, researchers, and other health care professionals at the opening ceremonies of the American College of Cardiology Annual Scientific Sessions in New Orleans Louisiana and then work remotely with their FACC mentor over the ensuing year.

Please see the Young Scholars Program flier for more information.  The deadline to apply is November 15.
