Jointly endorsed by the AHA FIT Program and The Global CardioVascular Clinical Trialists Forum (CVCT) , the aim of this program is to assist young investigators in forming their future as CardioVascular Clinical Trialists and give a substantial boost to their career; a vision that both the AHA FIT & CVCT Young Trialist programs have in common.
More about CVCT YIGS:
CVCT YIG was developed with the main goal of forming a new generation of investigators in cardiovascular field.
Young fellows can apply for a Young Investigator grant to attend the annual CVCT forum and most of our young fellow attendees would testify that attending CVCT is a real turning point in their career.
The intimate nature of CVCT provided them with the rare opportunity of having one-on-one conversations with many senior principal investigators/mentors with a long-record of clinical trials, that they would have never had access to otherwise, in big meetings nor at their educational institutions.
Our faculty at the annual forum constitutes 40% of the attendees; it is highest-level senior environment, at no other opportunity will a young fellow find themselves in the company of people from that caliber and have the opportunity to mix with them and learn from their expertise. CVCT gives them this opportunity
