A firm commitment to follow a career in the field of atherosclerosis and related disease is required.

The programme takes place over two years and will take the form of both online and face-to-face activities as circumstances allow.

The upcoming class is scheduled to commence in 2024, with the application process set to begin in January of the same year.
