Interventional Fellowship


Cardiology Fellowship

The cardiology fellowship is a three-year training program. The cardiology fellow is trained in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases and works closely with the staff cardiologists. Invasive training provides experience in cardiac catheterization, insertion of temporary and permanent pacemakers, electrophysiology, percutaneous coronary intervention, and insertion of the intraaortic balloon pump. Noninvasive training includes transthoracic echocardiography, stress testing, transesophageal echocardiography, and exposure to nuclear cardiography.

Fellows will spend a part of each year dedicated to clinical or basic science research activities and are expected to submit their results for publication. Fellows also teach residents and medical students at the bedside.

Interventional Cardiology Fellowship

The interventional cardiology fellowship is a one year training program. The interventional fellow is trained in the diagnosis and treatment of endovascular intervention and works closely with the staff interventional cardiologists. Invasive training provides experience in left heart catheterization as a primary operator, uses of the different types of catheters when cannulation of a coronary artery is difficult and appropriate medical management or percutaneous intervention or surgical revascularization for patients with Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). Also, procedures include successfully cannulate bypass grafts and recognize anomalous origins of coronary artery when present.

Fellows will spend part of each year dedicated to clinical or basic science research activities and are expected to submit their results for publication. Fellows also teach residents and medical students at the bedside.
