2021 Regenerative Medicine and Surgery Course

Description: This re-designed, two-course virtual series is designed to introduce participants to principles and practices of regenerative medicine and surgery. Each selected to attend will also have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with a Mayo expert, tailored to match their backgrounds and interests. This is an exclusive opportunity through AR3T for those outside of the Mayo/Minnesota community.

Part I (Fundamentals of Regenerative Sciences: Feb. 15-19, 2021, 9am-3:30pm CST) introduces stem cell biology, extracellular vesicles, platelet-rich plasma, and other regenerative therapeutics, as well as clinical product manufacturing.

Part II (Advanced Regenerative Medicine and Surgery: June 14-18, 2021, 9am-3:30pm CST) showcases state-of-the-art regenerative cardiology, neurology, orthopedic surgery, plastic surgery, and other specialties using clinical simulation, patient testimonials, and clinical trial case studies. Pre-clinical models, research ethics, and industrial collaboration will be discussed to help integrate regenerative medicine and surgery into your future practice.

Part I is a pre-requisite for Part II. Both sessions will provide unique networking opportunities with faculty and other trainees for solidifying the material and providing opportunities beyond the coursework. Here is a video from previous years showing elements of the course. More information about the courses, including faculty, course objectives, and course outlines, can be found here.

Ideal Applicant: Medical students, MD, PM&R residents, DPTs, PhDs in regenerative medicine, engineering and/or rehabilitation research fields.

Application Instructions: For this opportunity, apply directly to AR3T (ar3t@pitt.edu).  Only those selected by AR3T will be able to register for the Mayo courses outside of Mayo’s invited attendees.  Additionally, we would appreciate you sharing post-course reflections on your main takeaways & how you envision the material learned during the courses will apply to your careers moving forward.
