The future of our initiatives will be sustained by the next generation of investigators, clinicians, and healthcare professionals. We formed the CANet HQP Association for Trainees (CHAT) to nurture new professionals in public and private research through the development of Highly Qualified Personnel (HQP).
CHAT provides its members valuable resources and opportunities to network with like-minded colleagues, and participate in events and competitions across Canada that help strengthen their research and career development. To view a list of our CHAT members, click here.
To date, CHAT has conducted 159 courses and workshops, trained 3,842 HQP, and launched 70 new careers into the workplace.
Sol is a PhD candidate in Human Kinetics in the at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. Sol is a Clinical Exercise Physiologist certified by the American College of Sports Medicine with a strong passion to advance knowledge about the role of exercise training to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease.
She completed her undergraduate degree in Sports Science in Valencia, Spain, where she is originally from, and her MSc in Clinical Exercise Physiology at Liverpool John Moores University, in the UK.
“CANet and CHAT offer great support for trainees working in an arrhythmia-related field. Arrhythmias are complex diseases which require multidisciplinary work to improve patient care. This community allows me to connect with other researchers and clinicians involved in the care of arrhythmias but from many different disciplines.
For example, my background is in cardiovascular rehabilitation and how we can use exercise training to improve the health of patients with arrhythmias – this is one of many pieces of the arrhythmia care puzzle. If you need another reason to become a CANet and CHAT member, they have funding opportunities for members including the publication award and a travel award (yes, we are all dreaming of in-person conferences!).”
Sol’s PhD work is focused on sex-based analyses of the effects of exercise on physical and mental health outcomes in patients with Atrial Fibrillation.
