MedAxiom, the cardiovascular community’s premier destination for organizational performance solutions, has expanded its partnership with Wharton Online to develop a first-of its-kind business and management program designed specifically for cardiovascular fellows and early careerists. The program delivers world-class education from top business leaders to close the knowledge gap and empower the next generation of cardiovascular professionals.  

The Business Essentials for Cardiovascular Fellows Program focuses on the non-clinical competencies of healthcare operations, economics, change leadership and people management and arms future cardiovascular leaders with the tools and techniques needed to transform care. 

“Today’s healthcare environment requires a strong understanding of nonclinical competencies and business acumen, topics that are not currently part of training program curriculum. We are excited to expand our partnership with Wharton Online to deliver a groundbreaking business and management program designed specifically for cardiovascular fellows and early career professionals,” said MedAxiom President and CEO Jerry Blackwell, MD, MBA, FACC, a lead faculty member for the program. “We are committed to building cardiovascular leaders of the future.”  

The self-paced online program offers lecture videos, quizzes and activities designed specifically for fellows to jumpstart their careers as future business leaders.  

MedAxiom and Wharton Online also developed Cardiovascular Business and Management Essentials, a novel blended asynchronous and synchronous program designed for mid-career cardiovascular professionals. Through two cohorts of the program, more than 100 students have received market-separating tools and education and created a lifetime network.
