Message from the Chair of Research Committee

Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine
The Cardiovascular fellowship program at UICOMP has many strengths, including cardiovascular research. Due to an inspiring faculty and research fellow supporting clinical fellows, the research in our department is seeing new horizons with more than 15 abstracts accepted at national and international meetings in 2014-2015.
CVRC was formed to find new ideas, listen to fellows, and discuss the novelty and feasibility of new research projects. Two fellows are invited to each monthly meeting to express their research ventures. Funding, coordinator support, data collection, data analysis, and statistical support are decided in the monthly meetings. Fellows representation in national meetings is encouraged. We also target prestigious journals for publications by our fellows.
With these resources and more, we support our fellows wholeheartedly in achieving their scholarly goals.
