Hands-on patient-based learning in a busy academic center with dedicated full-time faculty is supplemented by didactic teaching, case conferences and opportunities for research. Faculty members possess a broad range of subspecialty expertise within the field of interventional cardiology. The program strives to create a collegial atmosphere with abundant opportunities for one-on-one interactions between faculty and fellows.

What Our Fellows Say...

Sayed Navqi

"URMC's Interventional Cardiology Fellowship Program is geared towards providing fellows with the resources and mentorship they need to develop skills in coronary, peripheral, and structural interventions.

Being a high-volume center, fellows at URMC are exposed to a diverse patient population with various degrees of pathology, enabling them to sharpen their clinical decision-making while using the most current interventional and imaging modalities.

Furthermore, the Interventional Cardiology Fellowship at URMC offers a supportive faculty and collegial environment that undoubtedly enables their fellows to excel and become leaders in the field. I am so proud to have trained here."

What Our Fellows Say...

"I completed my internal medicine, general cardiology and critical care training at the University of Rochester. I was fortunate to be able to stay here for interventional cardiology. It is a fantastic program. The faculty are approachable and fellows get to be involved in the decision making and perform a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures including primary PCI for ACS and planned complex PCI. We also get exposed to structural procedures including TAVR, PFO and LAAO closure and MitrClip. Mechanical support implant and explant is also something that we get comfortable with due to the very active advanced heart failure program. This program had everything I was looking for in my interventional training: procedural volume, great faculty, appropriate autonomy and in a city that not too big for my comfort. "
