Seven trainees to join the Editorial Board of Canada’s leading cardiology journal

CJC title

We are pleased to share that we received 26 applications from trainees to join the Editorial Board and Reviewer List for the Canadian Journal of Cardiology. Due to the high caliber of candidates, seven trainees will be joining the Editorial Board in a mentored role and 19 trainees will be invited to join as Reviewers.

This is a unique opportunity for trainees to have a meaningful role in the peer-review process, learn about the latest cardiovascular research before it’s published and network with prominent leaders in the field. We are confident that this initiative will prove to be of great value to the next generation of clinicians and scientists, as well as to the Cardiology community at large.

Trainees Members of the Editorial Board:
1. Martin Aguilar (Mentor: Stanley Nattel)
2. Laura Banks (Mentor: Brian McCrindle)
3. Ismail Bouhout (Mentor: Louis Perrault)
4. Guillaume Marquis-Gravel (Mentor: Marc Jolicoeur)
5. Amine Mazine (Mentor: Stephen Fremes)
6. William McIntyre (Mentor: Jeff Healey)
7. Saman Rezazadeh (Mentor:  Katherine Kavanagh)
