The fellowship program is structured to ensure graduates are completely facile with all aspects of contemporary cardiology and are qualified to function as consulting subspecialists in any clinical venue.  Beyond this, the program is intentionally flexible so that it can support a variety of different career goals, including clinical practice, hospital based subspecialty practice, and basic and clinical research.  The first year of the fellowship is highly structured and is comprised of a series of rotations exposing the fellow to all the major areas of cardiology.  The second and third years are less structured and include up to 10 of research rotations, during which the fellow is expected to identify an area of interest and to produce a substantial work of scholarship. Up to 4 months of this time can be used for clinical electives including cardiac CT and MR, vascular imaging, pediatric cardiology and adult congenital disease.

Fourth year Interventional Cardiology, Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant and Electrophysiology fellowship positions are available.















*     each rotation is 4 weeks in duration
