Our Goals

  • to provide robust clinical training in all areas of cardiovascular disease
  • to provide exposure to a wide range of clinical research
  • to do so in a collegial, collaborative and respectful environment which fosters outstanding work ethic, professionalism and lifelong learning

Our program encourages individual interests and needs, especially in the second and third years of training, when specific career planning is started. Fellows have typically been able to tailor more rotations in the subspeciality electives to match their interests.
