Rotation Schedule

The Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship includes clinical rotations in a variety of cardiology areas. The intent of this program is to individualize training within the framework of ABIM, COCATS and ACGME guidelines to optimize each fellow’s ability to achieve excellence in cardiology. Rotations are flexible and may be tailored to your goals and interests for future general cardiology practice or advanced training in interventional, electrophysiology or heart failure/transplant.
