Curriculum

Fellows complete core rotations on inpatient services including: Consultations, Heart Center, Electrophysiology, Advanced Heart Failure including heart transplant and ventricular assist devices, and the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit. Fellows have dedicated procedure blocks in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory.

Imaging rotations include Echocardiography and Nuclear Imaging. Fellows have dedicated outpatient general cardiology continuity clinic one half day per week throughout all three years of training. Nighttime coverage is through a night float system, with a first or second year fellow providing weeknight coverage. Weekend call responsibilities are shared between fellows in all years.

There is dedicated research time throughout the fellowship, with more research and elective blocks in the second and third years to allow fellows to focus their time based on their individual interests and career path.
