“We’ll have a speed dating set-up where participants can go from table to table and speak to Sarver faculty members about their research projects or just hear general career advice on getting into cardiovascular research or advancing their careers,” said Gretchen Jackson, program coordinator for the UA cardiology fellowship programs. “Afterward, they have the opportunity to reach out to any Cardiology faculty member.”

Drs. Julia Indik, Nancy Sweitzer and Jil TardiffThe fair’s primary sponsor is Julia Indik, MD, PhD, program director, UA Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship, who’ll be joined in speaking briefly at the event by cardiology chief and center director, Nancy Sweitzer, MD, PhD, and cardiologist Jil Tardiff, MD, PhD, vice chair for research, UA Department of Medicine.

Dr. Indik is also the Flinn Foundation and American Heart Association Endowed Chair in Electrophysiology and Heart Disease Research at the UA, and Dr. Tardiff is the UA’s Steven M. Gootter Endowed Chair for the Prevention of Sudden Cardiac Death.

There are four fellowship programs in cardiology at the UA Division of Cardiology, including two approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education this past year— Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology Fellowship and Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship.
