The National Institutes of Health, National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, recently awarded researchers at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and The Ohio State University Medical Center (OSUMC) a five-year, $1.4 million grant to provide in-depth training to clinicians and basic scientists in congenital and acquired heart disease.
This training program is the first in the country that focuses on cardiovascular disease as a continuum from fetal life to senescence, allowing Nationwide Children’s and Ohio State to be well-positioned to have a measurable impact on cardiovascular disease, and to foster new collaborative opportunities between two nationally ranked hospitals and programs.
“This grant further enhances the excellent cardiology fellowship programs at both institutions and encompasses our overall mission of being able to train the next generation of physicians who can advance the field for patients with heart disease of all ages. Our programs – pediatric, adult, and combined adult congenital heart disease – benefit greatly from this grant as we train future academic leaders while providing state-of-the-art care,” explained Timothy Hoffman, MD, Cardiology Fellowship director at Nationwide Children’s.
