Insights into Research in Cardiovascular Disease Masters Module
This postgraduate course is run by the CNIC as part of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) Molecular Biosciences Master’s Program. This optional module provides a broad overview of cardiovascular biology, including perspectives from
basic, clinical, and translational research. Attendants at this course are enrolled UAM Master’s students, CNIC predoctoral researchers, and participants on the Res@CNIC SEC Program (see below).
MEDICAL INTERN RESIDENTS
The Res@CNIC-SEC Program (in collaboration with the Spanish Society of Cardiology, SEC) offers resident medical interns the opportunity during the first years of their specialization period to learn about the latest techniques in cardiovascular
research being used in the CNIC’s laboratories, under the guidance of a CNIC scientist. Residents participating in RES@ CNIC also receive training in theoretical aspects of cardiovascular research through an expert-led taught module.
The Program also seeks to create links and collaborations so that on conclusion of their MIR specialization period, these professionals will have the chance to undertake research projects in their respective Hospitals in partnership
with CNIC scientists.
Participants in 2018: 20
INVESMIR SEC Program
The INVESMIR SEC Program offers resident medical interns the opportunity during their specialization period to further their training through a research project in one of the CNIC’s laboratories, under the supervision of a CNIC scientist.
important aim of the program is for participants to establish contacts and collaborations with CNIC researchers that will support them, after completion of their MIR specialization training, in pursuing their own research projects
at their centers within the Spanish National Health System. In 2018 one resident cardiologist intern participated in this Program.
