Program Director's Message
The objective of Winthrop-University Hospital's Cardiology Fellowship is to train thoughtful, humanistic and capable clinicians who are well grounded in Cardiac Pathophysiology, evidence-based management and diagnostic strategies, and in cardiovascular research. This is achieved through intense one-on-one contact with full-time faculty members, many of whom are leaders in the full array of cardiovascular subspecialties.
- Diversified, state-of-the-art training in all aspects of clinical, non-invasive and invasive cardiology
- Fellowship training exclusively at Winthrop, one of US News and World Report's best cardiovascular hospitals
- Preceptorships with internationally recognized faculty
- Balanced program with exceptional clinical and research opportunities
- Generous house staff benefits, including heavily subsidized housing
A three-year program affording rotations in clinical consultation, the catheterization laboratory, the electrophysiology service, non-invasive cardiology and critical care cardiology. Fellows serve as consultant cardiologists to general medical clinicians through weekly outpatient cardiology sessions. Significant time is spent working closely with a preceptor to formulate a research project during subspecialty training and during their protected research block.
