About the Seminar

The U.S. Ten-Day Seminar is a unique program for physicians, researchers, public health practitioners, nurses and other health care professionals that is designed to provide training in new areas of investigation and application of new methods related to the promotion of cardiovascular health and prevention of heart diseases and stroke, including descriptive epidemiology, quality of care and outcomes research, genetic epidemiology, policy, and environmental approaches to health. 

The overall goal of the conference is to enhance the ability of participants to pursue successful careers related to the epidemiology and prevention of heart disease and stroke, and the promotion of cardiovascular health through development of competencies related to grant writing, manuscript development, teaching, and clinical and public health practice. A select faculty of epidemiologists, biostatisticians and prevention researchers will use interactive learning techniques; including lectures, small group discussions, and tutorial sessions illustrating basic principles of cardiovascular disease and stroke epidemiology, and prevention, and their applications. There will be extensive group participation. 

The conduct of the seminar will comply with COVID-19 safety requirements. It is expected that all fellows, faculty and staff are fully vaccinated prior to start of the seminar.
