CURRICULUM

Fellowship Structure

The fellowship program is structured to ensure graduates are completely facile with all aspects of contemporary cardiology and are qualified to function as consulting subspecialists in any clinical venue. Beyond this, the program is intentionally flexible so that it can support a variety of different career goals, including clinical practice, hospital based subspecialty practice, and basic and clinical research. The first year of the fellowship is structured and comprised of rotations exposing the fellow to all the major areas of cardiology.

The second and third years are less structured and include time for research rotations, during which the fellow is expected to identify an area of interest and to produce a substantial work of scholarship. Time can be used for clinical electives including cardiac CT and MR, vascular imaging, pediatric cardiology and adult congenital disease.

Fourth year Interventional Cardiology, Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant and Electrophysiology fellowship positions are available.

INSTRUCTIONS: In order to add a sidebar anchor:

  1. Duplicate the existing item, listed as a 1/6 text field. (Or create a 1/6 column and add a text field, modify the class so it’s exactly “additionalAnchor”).
  2. Modify the text field inside the 1/6 column. Inside there, modify the HYPERLINK so that it would go to a corresponding section with a “#” in front of it. (Example, we have a “chief” section on the page, then it would make sense to have the hyperlink go to “#chief”)
  3. Then change the hyperlink TEXT to a appropriate label.
  4. IMPORTANT: If not done already, go into that CONTAINER that corresponds to your anchor (i.e. Meet The Chiefs), and add an ID matching the anchor’s HYPERLINK WITHOUT the “#”, i.e. “chief”.
  5. (If using side bar widget box, then there’s a saved copy of a widget box COLUMN, grab it in the column library, it should 1/6 of a length of a column.)

NOTE: Order added to the sidebar is from last to first.
