Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program
Our mission is to train the leading cardiovascular physicians, teachers and researchers of tomorrow. To achieve this goal, we provide personalized teaching in an academically and clinically challenging environment. We look for fellows who seek a rigorous yet individualized environment of learning. We provide core cardiovascular training and the opportunities to go beyond that core.
The first and second year of fellowship are devoted to developing core clinical skills. Rotations provide high-volume experience in all aspects of invasive and noninvasive cardiology. The unique Year 3 of the UVM Cardiovascular Fellowship contains rotations in advanced heart failure, preventive cardiology and vascular medicine and is otherwise devoted to individualized subspecialty training and research.
Procedural exposure during the UVM cardiovascular fellowship program includes all aspects of interventional cardiology including structural interventions and a high-volume TAVR program, state-of-the-art electrophysiology with advanced ablation and device therapy, and contemporary noninvasive imaging modalities including SPECT, PET, CMR and CCT.
There are ample opportunities for bench, translational, and clinical research. Moreover, UVM offers a range of experiences in quality, epidemiology, and cross-disciplinary research. We strive to educate the academic leaders of tomorrow, and our program structure allows fellows to shape their academic experience to their interests.
In summary, our aim is not to produce one kind of cardiologist, but to help our trainees develop and pursue their own career goals. Thus, the fellows who graduate from our program are equipped to thrive in their chosen field of cardiovascular medicine.
