Physicians in the ACGME/AOA-accredited Cardiovascular Medicine fellowship work one-on-one with globally and nationally recognized board-certified cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons over their three years in the program. Rotations include: cardiac consultation, cardiac care unit, electrophysiology, cardiac catheterization, cardiovascular surgery and research.

Our cardiology faculty has been extraordinarily productive in publishing scholarly articles in various publications and peer-reviewed journals. Under their guidance, fellows acquire and hone the knowledge and skills needed to provide state of the art cardiac care, advancing the discipline in their own research and practice. Working closely with our distinguished faculty, fellows conduct numerous research projects throughout their training.

Elective time is allocated to fulfill desired COCATS requirements. The majority of fellows in this program finish with board certification in echocardiography and nuclear cardiology.
