Why Choose Our Program?
The Advanced Heart Failure and Transplantation Fellowship Program at the University of Rochester is an ACGME accredited 1-year training program which provides exceptional educational opportunities to prospective fellows in all aspects of advanced heart failure care. We accept one advanced fellow per year, who participates in clinical as well as research activities throughout the year.
The University of Rochester Medical Center is a large, tertiary referral center that treats a broad spectrum of cardiac disease. We have one of the largest VAD programs in the country being consistently ranked in the top 3 centers nationally for implanting the HeartMate 3™. We also have a state-of-the-art cardiac transplant program being the only center in the Upstate and Western NY region ensuring excellent exposure for prospective fellows. Our group also has multidisciplinary specialty programs in cardio-oncology, infiltrative cardiomyopathies, multimodality advanced imaging, mechanical circulatory support and structural heart disease. Our internationally recognized Clinical Cardiovascular Research Center has led numerous, high impact studies on reducing the risk of sudden cardiac death in heart failure patients, developing less invasive methods of LVAD implantation, assessing long-term outcomes of LVAD patients and improving access to care for advanced heart failure patients. These projects afford fellows the opportunities to engage in meaningful projects that often result in high impact international presentations and publications. Many of our projects have changed the way heart failure cardiology is practiced worldwide.
