Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death worldwide—and in Indiana. Cardiovascular diseases claim more lives each year than the next three leading causes combined.
To meet this challenge, the Cardiovascular Institute brings together highly skilled caregivers, researchers, and educators into close collaboration to improve the health of patients and communities across Indiana.
The Indiana University School of Medicine in cooperation with the Cardiovascular Institute and CVI's research arm, the Krannert Cardiovascular Research Center, will launch a new cardiovascular fellowship this summer that will fuel innovation in cardiovascular medicine. The Anderson Cardiovascular Innovation Fellowship is a 12-month training program designed to develop fellows from novice physicians to highly skilled cardiovascular innovators. Chirag D. Shah, MD, MPH, is the first fellow selected to participate in this new fellowship and will begin his fellowship in July.
