Core Faculty

The Department of Cardiovascular Sciences is a large, diverse group of outstanding physicians, educators, researchers and administrators. During your fellowship, you will have the opportunity to work individually with many of these faculty who are leaders in the field and can help to advise and mentor your own career plans.

Faculty for the Cardiovascular Medicine Fellowship are involved in every aspect of the fellowship training. The faculty provides not only didactic teaching and clinical supervision, but all patient encounters and procedures performed by fellows are supervised by attending cardiologists.
