The Cardiovascular Research Empowerment Workforce (CREW) is designed to inspire interest in cardiovascular science, develop basic research skills, and promote research as a career path among USVI undergraduate students.
Students will learn research skills addressing cardiovascular health under the mentorship of faculty from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, the US Virgin Islands Department of Health, and the University of the Virgin Islands. The experience culminates with an academic symposium where participants present research findings to participating faculty and the larger USVI public health community. This includes a 2-week didactic bootcamp at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, followed up by a 6-week experiential project in the United States Virgin Islands which includes paid meals, housing, and round-trip flight to Miami.
