It is vital to the future intellectual health of cardiovascular medicine and the welfare of patients with cardiovascular disease that all future cardiologists be familiar with the principles and tools of research. Training in research requires the intense involvement of productive and established investigators. Those trainees preparing for a career in investigative cardiology require a carefully developed but flexible educational plan that will permit them to be successful in their research careers over an extended period. This is a revision of the 2002 document that was written by Robert Roberts, MD, FACC-Chair; R. Wayne Alexander, MD, PhD, FACC; Joseph Loscalzo, MD, FACC; and R. Sanders Williams, MD, FACC.
