The Institute debuted a cardiovascular-pulmonary (CVP) sciences concentration in September of 2005. The concentration focuses on understanding the heart and the lungs as an integrated system. CVP is designed to fine tune critical thinking skills essential for the future of medicine in general. Students analyze experimental techniques, clinical trial design, devices, cardiovascular biology in an interactive class led by leaders in the field. MED223.
