Shaping the Future Leaders of Cardiovascular Medicine
Our mission is focused on training excellent clinicians with a broad exposure to all aspects of clinical cardiology with the anticipation that they will be competitive on the national scene for advanced fellowships, faculty positions, and clinical practice.
We also train our fellows as clinician educators. We offer a variety of opportunities to lead conferences and discussions within our institution with the ultimate goal that those who are enthusiastic about pursuing this career path, and have excelled in this aspect of training, may be recruited to any desired faculty position. We are confident that we will prepare our fellows to successfully practice cardiology in the private practice setting as well. We endeavor to provide our trainees with a solid foundation and statistics and research methodology not only to enhance their ability to critically viewed the current literature, but so that those who are interested may also go on to engage in clinical research.
We strive to recruit fellowship candidates who will thrive and be successful in this environment.
