Emerging Leaders will participate in ten online training modules that include a combination of pre-reading, online videos, and post-module activities covering topics such as:

  • Cardiovascular disease epidemiology
  • Implementation science
  • Health systems evaluation
  • Health policy research
  • Law and medicine

Emerging Leaders will then meet face to face to participate in a five day interactive think-tank seminar to learn from global experts and develop proposals around a common theme in implementation science, health systems, and health policy research that targets '25 x 25' goal. Themes are based on World Heart Federation priority areas.


Candidates may either apply for selection themselves or be nominated by an existing World Heart Federation member, as long as all the selection criteria are satisfied.
