General Cardiology Fellowship Curriculum

Fellowship Structure

The fellowship program is structured to ensure graduates are facile in 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 academic and private clinical practice, subspecialty fellowships, and basic or clinical research.

The first year of the fellowship is comprised of rotations exposing fellows to all major areas of cardiology. The second and third years are less structured and include time for research rotations, during which time each fellow is expected to identify an area of interest and produce a substantial work of scholarship. Clinical electives including nuclear cardiology/cardiac CT, cardiac MRI, and advanced heart failure. Fellows may also pursue elective outpatient opportunities in inherited arrhythmia/cardiomyopathy clinic, advanced heart failure clinic at the JBVA, structural heart disease clinic, and electrophysiology clinic.
