The Interventional Cardiology Fellowship is designed to provide cardiology training in coronary interventions, with significant exposure to peripheral and structural procedures. In addition, the interventional cardiology fellow will obtain experience in the clinical and translational interventional cardiology research program.

The program is primarily devoted to training the interventional fellow in both advanced diagnostic and interventional percutaneous coronary procedures. Substantive supplemental exposure to noncoronary cardiac, peripheral, and structural diagnostic and interventional procedures will also be obtained. Competency in basic peripheral vascular (iliac and brachiocephalic) should be expected. A broad range of established and experimental techniques and devices will be used. During the year each fellow will participate actively in approximately 300+  interventional procedures as well as 200-300 diagnostic procedures.

In addition to performing these procedures, the fellow is primarily responsible for the pre-procedure assessment and post procedural care of his/her patients. The interventional cardiovascular fellow will work closely with our highly experienced interventional cardiovascular nurse practitioners/physician assistants, interventional cardiovascular unit nurses, catheterization laboratory, research, and office/administrative staff. As part of his training, he/she is a source of reference and assistance to the internal medicine housestaff who rotate through the inpatient cardiology service.

The fellowship program has a core curriculum which is completed through independent reading, patient care, procedures, and weekly interventional conferences. The trainee will have the opportunity to initiate, develop, and participate in multi-center and single-center research projects.
