Houston Methodist Hospital - DeBakey CV Education
In 2010, Houston Methodist DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center received an $8M grant from The DeBakey Medical Foundation and was tasked with building the premier cardiovascular training organization in the world. Founder of Houston Methodist DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center, Dr. Michael E. DeBakey trained thousands of surgeons, instilling in them the desire to be lifelong learners and continually strive for excellence. Building on Dr. Michael E. DeBakey’s commitment to excellence in education, Houston Methodist DeBakey CV Education was created and today offers globally accessible, comprehensive cardiovascular education, including hands-on training, for health professionals at every level.
Their mission is to promote training and education around all aspects of cardiovascular disease in Houston, the United States and around the world. By promoting cardiovascular education, DeBakey CV Education seeks to improve cardiovascular health, and reduce the global burden of cardiovascular disease.
