Educational Program & Curriculum

The USF Cardiology-Oncology Fellowship Training Program is a 12-month training program comprised of clinical exposure, didactic teaching and clinical and/or basic science research. Instruction will be performed under the direction of expert faculty primarily based at Moffitt Cancer Center. The curriculum is designed so that upon completion of the fellowship, trainees will be prepared to develop and lead a cardio-oncology program.

The fellow will be intimately involved in all aspects of the cardio-oncology program. Clinical experiences will be both in the outpatient cardio-oncology clinic and the inpatient wards at Moffitt Cancer Center. Fellows will also have the opportunity to rotate in specific oncology clinics such as breast, malignant hematology and bone marrow transplant. Fellows will have broad exposure to advanced cardiac imaging through the programs at Moffitt Cancer Center and the University of South Florida. Fellows can expect to receive training in cardiac MRI and cardiac CT, as well as advanced echocardiography techniques including strain and 3D imaging. In addition, the training program can be tailored to meet the individual interests and career goals of the fellow.
