Message from the Program Director

Over the past two years we have been methodically developing a comprehensive core curriculum that will prepare our fellows academically and clinically . With the small size of our class we will offer a uniquely personalized program with a high volume of clinical exposure, as well as the opportunity to work closely with individual faculty in pursuing clinical research. Our objectives are to offer balanced training to meet the rigors of a general cardiology practice and to provide a solid foundation for the potential pursuit of further subspecialty training. Our curriculum can be tailored to meet one’s individual and professional goals during elective and research training blocks. Overall training will focus on mastering the core clinical competencies of the ACGME.

The required knowledge in the field of cardiology continues to grow exponentially. Our fellows will be well prepared and exposed to cutting edge technologies. There will be exposure to advanced cardiovascular imaging techniques and to the growing subspecialty areas of structural heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, heart failure and mechanical support. We have high volume LVAD and TAVR programs. We offer our patients ECMO and Impella support. There will be an opportunity to work in our unique inpatient Heart Failure Accountable Care Unit as well as our outpatient multidisciplinary Heart Failure Clinic. General clinic will include working the first NCQA level 3 PCSP (patient centered specialty practice) in the US.

We are very excited and enthusiastic about our cardiovascular fellowship and seek trainees who are highly motivated to dedicate themselves to work hard and are committed to lifelong learning. We wish to train highly competent and compassionate cardiologists who could ultimately remain in our community and potentially become part of our growing clinical faculty.
