About the Program
The Cardiovascular Diseases Fellowship prepares cardiologists to be fully capable of meeting the current and future needs of the clinical and academic cardiology communities.
The program strives to produce well-rounded clinical cardiologists who provide excellent and compassionate patient care and who have a strong desire for life-long learning. An equally important goal is to produce academic cardiologists who conduct active clinical and basic scientific research with the highest of ethical standards.
The fellowship curriculum is designed to provide a broad clinical exposure in acute and chronic cardiovascular care occurring in the inpatient and outpatient settings, as well as extensive experience in non-invasive and invasive cardiac procedures. Every effort will be made to afford fellows interested in clinical or basic research the support needed to begin a successful investigative career. The curriculum is also designed to promote a culture of evidence-based medicine, teach critical thinking and analysis, and to train fellows to be educators for the community, patients and other fellows.
Our program consistently graduates cardiologists who are successful at every level - from private practitioner to university-based academic researcher.
