CardioNerds Healy Honor Roll

The CardioNerds Healy Honor Roll is the list of cardiovascular fellowship programs which support the CardioNerds mission to Democratize Cardiovascular Education. Each honor roll program nominates a CardioNerds Ambassador & contributes open-access content by way of CardioNerds Case Reports Series.

CardioNerds Ambassadors are fellows nominated by CardioNerds fellowships to represent education at their program. 

The CardioNerds Healy Honor Roll is named after Dr. Bernadine Patricia Healy, a CardioNerd Hero who was the first female director of the National Institutes of Health and accomplished incredible achievements during her career.

CardioNerds Clinical Trials Network

The CardioNerds Clinical Trials Network aims to marry trial enrollment with FIT personal and professional development. 

CardioNerds Clinical Trials Program Goals
✔️Invigorate a love of cardiovascular medicine & science – by cultivating FIT interest and development in clinical research.
✔️Provide mentorship & sponsorship – by creating a professional network around each FIT trialist.
✔️Promote diversity, equity, & inclusion – by encouraging and rewarding enrollment of women and minorities. 
✔️Create & disseminate education – by empowering the most active FITs to create podcasts and other educational content related to trials. 

Case REports: Recruitment Series

The CardioNerds Cardiology Case Reports series shines light on the hidden curriculum of medical storytelling. We learn together while discussing fascinating cases in this fun, engaging, and educational format.

We teamed up with the ACC FIT Section to use the #CNCR episodes to showcase CV education across the country in the era of virtual recruitment. 

We are looking for cases with high educational value, whether routine or rare, with clear learning points.

NOTE: currently we are seeking cases from resident and fellow trainees in the United States. Residents must have an actively engaged fellow mentor.

What is Making Your Heart Flutter?

We know that the daily grind of health care can be really tough on everyone in the trenches of the practice of medicine. 

We find that our passion for medical education has really enhanced our sense of satisfaction and wellbeing. We want to highlight this on our show and so we created the “What is making my heart flutter” segment. 

A “Flutter Moment” is a moment of inspiration that enhanced your sense of wellbeing. This can be related to patient care, the work place, something that happened at home, or just simply an appreciation for some of life’s sweet moments.

Please send an audio file to us describing what made your heart flutter so we can play it at the end of our next episode so we can all celebrate YOUR great moments together!
