While the primary focus of the Interventional program is development of expertise in the clinical practice of interventional cardiology, Fellows are encouraged and expected to participate in scholarly pursuits during their Interventional Cardiology training. Potential projects may include the design and implementation of smaller scale clinical trials, participation in a database-centered research, development of a quality assurance project, and/or writing of clinical case reports. Many of our Fellows have also presented unique or challenging cases at national meetings.
