Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship

The cardiovascular fellowship is a three-year comprehensive training program, which includes all aspects of cardiology. Because BUMC is such a high-volume institution with a wide variety of patients, fellows gain enough experience to complete the program in three years, compared with four years at other institutions.

Dr. Peter McCullough

"The Baylor University Medical Center Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship is one of the nation's best balanced clinical and academic training program. Our fellows complete the program with outstanding clinical and procedural competencies in complex cardiovascular patients. They also benefit from training with preeminent experts in their fields who are among the most published and academically accomplished in the world. Baylor has a rich tradition of scholarship that emanates from its roots in medicine and surgery and is carried forward in the modern practice of academic cardiovascular medicine."

Our Mission

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.
