Eligible applicants must be postdoctoral candidates who are M.D.s in their second year of surgical residency and Ph.D. postdoctoral fellows, all with a strong interest in cardiovascular research. Surgery resident applicants must be willing to delay the completion of their clinical training for two years.
Applicants must be citizens or non-citizen nationals of the United States, or must have been lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence.
Presently, priority is given to applicants from surgical residency programs at Baylor College of Medicine, and postgraduate programs at Baylor, Rice University, and the University of Houston. However, interested applications from other institutions may apply to the program.
