Cardiovascular Behavioral Medicine

This one- to three-year program for physicians, third- and fourth-year residents, and PhD's focuses on research methods, cardiovascular psychopathology, epidemiology of cardiovascular disease, and behavioral disease factors. The multifaceted training combines didactic and laboratory work with opportunities for research-oriented patient contact. Each fellow is encouraged to expand his or her independent research interests in close association with several behavioral medicine faculty members. The training program sponsors an annual health psychology/behavioral medicine poster session and urges fellows to participate in the Pittsburgh Mind-Body Center Summer Institute. Five predoctoral stipends and five postdoctoral stipends are available each year.
