CVI Mentorship Program
for Early Career Researchers
The Cardiovascular Institute Mentorship Program connects early career cardiovascular scientists with faculty mentors for one-on-one career and research advice.
We welcome Mentee applications from any early career researcher (e.g. graduate student, medical student, resident, postdoc, fellow, or instructor) who is either a CVI member (join here) or whose primary research mentor is a CVI member.
You must be currently studying or working at Stanford to participate in the program.
We welcome Mentor applications from any Stanford University faculty member.
