About this Research Topic

Manuscript Submission Deadline 30 April 2023

Cardiovascular medicine has developed magnificently over the last few decades, especially with regard to diagnostic and therapeutic options. However, the increase in scientific knowledge and in technological and biological developments goes along with an increased requirement for students and trainees to learn an increasing amount of theoretical information and master additional competencies and practical skills. This obviously also represents new challenges for trainers in charge of preparing the new generation of cardiovascular specialists in order to ensure the maintenance of a high level of clinical and scientific quality. Traditionally fellowship programs have focused on the completion of a specific program. Recently, however, new alternative learning methods have been suggested.

In addition, in an era where anyone can find all kinds of information on the Internet, it appears critical to include patients and the community at large in the education process. Indeed, prevention remains one of the pillars of cardiovascular medicine, and current means of informing the population certainly represent a unique opportunity to make this approach more effective.

The present Research Topic hopes to set the focus of education in the field of cardiovascular medicine and its recent developments gaining attention. A focus is on simulation-based learning methods, online supported learning, and interdisciplinary learning approaches. We aim to focus on education in the field of cardiovascular medicine and its recent noteworthy developments. Submitted contributions should help to better understand the current situation regarding professionals and population education possibilities in the matter of Cardiovascular Medicine.

We welcome contributions that cover, but are not limited to following themes:
1) Traditional education methods and approaches, and their current challenges.
2) Education approaches for the public versus health professionals.
3) Validation, curricular, accreditations, and recognition of education and training programs.
4) Teaching and training material, tools and strategies.
5) Digitalization, virtual reality, simulation, and other innovative teaching and training opportunities.
6) The role of industry in Cardiovascular Education.
7) Patients, communities, and society education to improve the global benefit of cardiovascular medicine.
8) Transdisciplinary, including non-medical education approaches to improve the impact of cardiovascular training.
9) Education in theory versus in practice.

Keywords: Early-Stage Researcher, Education


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
