Young Hearts Visiting Professor for Career Development Award

Award Application Window: April 17–June 11, 2019 at 11 p.m. (Central Time)

Program Description

The American Heart Association’s Council on Lifelong Congenital Heart Disease and Heart Health in the Young (Young Hearts) is proud to sponsor the Young Hearts Visiting Professor for Career Development Award. This sponsorship will facilitate in-depth, educationally focused visits by prominent experts in pediatric cardiology and cardiovascular medicine. The visiting professorship encourages mentorship and academic development of pediatric cardiology fellows and faculty who are early in their academic careers at the host institution.

Who Should Apply

Pediatric cardiology programs in the United States with or without pediatric cardiology fellowships are eligible to apply. General pediatric programs without divisions of pediatric cardiology are also welcome to apply. The chief of the pediatric cardiology division or pediatric department should serve as the “host” of the visiting professor and the visit. The divisions of pediatric cardiology that apply should be those divisions/ departments that do not typically have the opportunity to bring in prominent experts in the field of pediatric cardiovascular medicine to their institution. The host may choose a visiting professor from the United States or abroad. The visiting professor should be a regionally, nationally or internationally noted figure.

  • A visiting professor should only receive one honorarium a year.
  • An institution may not have a visiting professor in two consecutive years.

Awards Given

One award is available per year. The award provides an honorarium of $1,000 to the Visiting Professor and up to $1,500 for travel and other expenses. The duration of the program should be two days. Academic development is an essential component of the visit and the major focus of this award.

How to Apply

Please visit the Council Awards System to submit the applications.

The application must include:

  1. The host’s and the visiting professor’s curriculum vitae.
  2. A letter signed by the proposed visiting professor affirming acceptance of the “invitation”.
  3. Two- to four-page statement (not more than 1000 words) by the host institution addressing the following points:
    • The specific needs, aims and goals of the division or department in having this visiting professor speak.
    • How does this visiting professor advance the aims of the division/department?
    • Proposed agenda of the two-day visit.
    • Specify the people at the host institution that will be exposed to the visiting professor. Please include approximate number of fellows, junior faculty, senior level faculty, medical students, and residents who will individually meet the visiting professor and others involved in the visit.

Selection Process

  • Nationally Competitive
  • Awards announced at the Annual Young Hearts Council Dinner at AHA Scientific Sessions
