Program Highlights

  • The University of Rochester Medical Center is a large, tertiary referral center that treats a broad spectrum of cardiac disease.
  • We have a wide array of diagnostic imaging, including:
    • echocardiography
    • nuclear cardiology
    • cardiac MR
    • coronary CT angiography
  • A busy cath and EP lab that offers multiple modalities of treatment
  • An active heart failure/transplant team.
  • Despite the extensive patient exposure and facilities, our program is truly medium sized, with the benefits of a bustling large medical center balanced nicely by a close-knit, friendly environment small enough so that we know all of our colleagues well.
  • Our faculty truly treat fellows as colleagues, not as subordinate trainees.
