About this program

2018 Workshop, conducted by Heart Health Research Center, is a joint venture between the George Institute, China and Cardio Union. It aims to enhance research capacity and capability of clinicians, to provide an opportunity for attendees to consult with our world-class course instructors about their own research projects, and to provide an opportunity for networking with research peers and internationally recognized experts in clinical research. All the sessions will be taught in English. But attendees are welcome to ask questions in Chinese.

Throughout the two-day program, attendees are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this workshop to move their own research projects forward. During all sessions, attendees are encouraged to ask questions related to  their own research, to seek input on appropriate statistical methods for analysing their own study data, and to seek help on preparing their own research manuscripts.  

A Certificate of Attendance will be presented to each participant at the end of the workshop.
