Justin Bachmann, MD, MPH, is receiving the Presidential Career Development Award from the American College of Cardiology (ACC), which comes with one year of research support totaling $70,000.
The award, one of three Presidential Career Development Awards nationally that were recently announced by the ACC, is designed to support junior faculty in the early phases of their careers in the field of cardiology. Bachmann and the other awardees will be recognized at the ACC Convocation, Inauguration and Awards Ceremony on March 18 during the ACC’s 68th Annual Scientific Session in New Orleans.
“This is an important and well-deserved honor,” said Thomas Wang, MD, Gottlieb C. Friesinger II Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine and director of the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine. “The American College of Cardiology is one of our major professional societies, and the award is a significant testament to the high regard for Dr. Bachmann and his work.”
Bachmann is a cardiologist and assistant professor of Medicine, Biomedical Informatics and Health Policy. He is part of the core faculty of the Vanderbilt Center for Clinical Cardiovascular Outcomes Research and Trials Evaluation. His research focus is operationalizing patient-reported outcomes measurement in routine clinical practice. He has a secondary focus in improving the effectiveness and utilization of cardiac rehabilitation, and serves as medical director of the Vanderbilt Dayani Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Program.
Bachmann is also the co-course director for the annual Vanderbilt Value-based Health Care Delivery Seminar along with Melinda Buntin, PhD, and Ranga Ramanujam, PhD.
His work has been funded by the Vanderbilt Patient-centered Outcomes Research Career Knowledge, Education and Training (V-POCKET) K12 program, and has been published in Circulation and the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Bachmann obtained his MD at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, followed by clinical training in Internal Medicine at Johns Hopkins Hospital and Cardiovascular Disease at University of Texas-Southwestern Medical Center. Upon completion of his clinical training, he pursued training in health services research as a research associate at the Institute of Strategy and Competitiveness at Harvard Business School. He subsequently completed an MPH degree with a concentration in clinical effectiveness at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
