Leaders in Cardiovascular Research Interview Series

The Leaders in Cardiovascular Research Interview Series by the American College of Cardiology Medical Student Leadership Group serves to conduct interviews with leading researchers and healthcare experts about their personal approach to conducting impactful cardiovascular research and developing essential skills for a productive career in both the clinical and research realms.

Monthly, leadership member/editor Adriana C. Mares, and ambassadors Diego Chambergo-Michilot and Jeremy Levett, record these interviews to give medical students a clearer picture of how to become more involved in research, how to maximize strategies, services, and tools available to maximize their research potential, and make the most of the experts' recommendations to jumpstart a productive career in academic cardiology.
