CardioNerds birthed multiple initiatives including the Clinical Trials Network – a fellow-based network aiming to pair equitable trial recruitment with trainee development, CardioNerds Academy – an online school to advance digital medical education, the Healy Honor Roll – a multi-institutional collaboration with 50 cardiovascular fellowship programs for online education, the Medical Journalism Program – a trainee-led journalism source to report on the latest advances in cardiovascular medicine., the CardioNerds Scholarship – a program to support proposals that synergize with its mission by providing funding, mentorship, and sponsorship, the Narratives in Cardiology Series – a grant-funded program to promote diversity and inclusion in cardiovascular medicine, in collaboration with the Pennsylvania ACC Chapter and the ACC Fellows-in-Training Section, and the Cardiology Twitter Journal Clubs (#CardsJC), including in collaboration with HFSA and ASPC.
