Graduate students are eligible for the  Molecular Physiology of the Cardiovascular System training program after their first year of study. Postdoctoral trainees are eligible upon admission.  Both pre- and post- must be members of a training faculty's lab.

Program directors will solicit nominations from the training faculty and the chosen candidates will submit a curriculum vitae and a brief summary outlining the rationale and specific aims of their proposed research and their relevance to the goals of the training program.

The primary faculty mentor for a candidate will submit a letter of support outlining the training potential of the candidate, current progress of the research. Further letters from secondary mentors or members of the student’s thesis committee (in the case of a predoctoral student) is recommended.
