Our mission is to train, develop and support the next generation of physician leaders in cardiovascular medicine. We strive to accomplish this mission by providing a diverse and high-volume patient care experience in an academic setting with a tradition of scholarship and excellence both at the bedside and in the classroom.
Our fellows work alongside the nation's preeminent cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons providing advanced diagnostics, medical therapy, percutaneous interventional and electrophysiological procedures, and cardiovascular surgery.
Our approach is to personalize medicine with a focus on the patient's unique needs through the cardiovascular continuum. This is an intimate fellowship that has a rich tradition of bedside and procedural training combined with high-quality case conference and topic reviews forming the basis for life-long learning.
Clinical investigation is a cornerstone of the academic mission for the program involving fellows in cutting-edge research and scholarly activity with some of the world's most recognized figures in academic cardiology.
