The University of Rochester offers a 1-year ACGME accredited subspecialty Fellowship in Interventional Cardiology. The goal of the program is to provide state-of-the art training in all aspects of adult interventional cardiology. Training is focused on obtaining mastery of the cognitive and technical skills necessary to care for patients with coronary artery disease, peripheral arterial disease and structural heart disease. 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

“University of Rochester Medical Center offers excellent training in all aspects of interventional cardiology with the appropriate amount of graded supervision and autonomy. Our program offers coronary, peripheral, and structural interventional experiences at a high volume all within one year.

"There are vast amounts of clinical research opportunities with statistical support. If I had to choose an interventional program again, I would, without hesitation, choose the University of Rochester.”
