The USF Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program admits six highly qualified physicians to its program each year. This three-year program emphasizes clinical and research training. USF cardiologists maintain a busy patient practice and the institutions offer the fellows diverse clinical exposure to a wide variety of patients.
The fellowship experience is divided into two major parts:
By the end of three years, fellows have gained extensive experience in consultative cardiology, cardiac catheterization, transesophageal and transthoracic echocardiography, stress testing, ECG interpretation and noninvasive electrocardiographic monitoring. In addition, fellows participate in electrophysiological studies, pacemaker and defibrillator implantation and evaluation, and percutaneous coronary interventions. Some graduates of the USF cardiology fellowship program meet all the requirements for certification in nuclear cardiology. Exposure to cardiac CT and MR is also available.
In addition to our three year general fellowship, we offer the following programs:
Involvement in clinical or basic research is required and is based on the interests of each individual. Research rotations are provided during all fellowship years. An additional year of research may be arranged. Our fellows will also be encouraged to participate in different honorary societies.
Advanced degrees at USF including M.B.A. and M.P.H. may be electively pursued by trainees in cardiovascular disease.
We participate in ERAS and will only accept applications and documents through ERAS.
Please do not send documents through email to the Program Director or Fellowship Coordinator. These documents will be discarded. You must have satisfactorily completed an ACGME-accredited Internal Medicine residency program.
Please note that our institution does not accept H1b Visas.
Thank you for your interest in our program and good luck to you.
