Building up capacity, professional development, mentorship
and networking of CVD Emerging Leaders in 100 countries
The 2017-2018 cohort marks the fifth year of the programme and will focus on stroke. Previous cohorts have focused on access to essential medicines, secondary prevention of cardiovascular diseases, raised blood pressure, and tobacco prevention and control.
The World Heart Federation aims to reach as many potential candidates as possible on a global basis. Candidates from academia, civil service, private industry and cardiovascular medicine are encouraged to apply. Candidates may be affiliated with a member organization of the World Heart Federation, but this is not mandatory.
All Emerging Leaders participants are required to participate in online training, a five-day think tank seminar and collaborative group work based on proposals developed during the seminar with seed funding support from the World Heart Federation from meritorious applications. The think tank will take place from 25-29 June at Duke Kunshan University in the proximity of Shanghai.
