Educational Goals

The cardiovascular diseases fellowship is a three-year program designed to train both clinical and academic cardiologists. The evidence-based curriculum is organized to provide increasing levels of responsibility for trainees with respect to patient care and procedure performance.

Adequate progression through the curriculum is assessed by evaluating each fellow’s clinical judgment, clinical skills, medical knowledge, procedural skills, professionalism, communication skills, leadership ability and continuing scholarship.

At all times during training, fellows are expected to conduct themselves professionally with the highest of ethical standards and are expected to display integrity, honesty, compassion and respect to all members of the health care team, patients and patient family members.

Fellows should always be strong advocates for all patients under their care and should utilize the health care system to maximize the benefit to each individual patient while respecting the patient’s autonomy and expressed wishes. The welfare of the patient should be the fellow’s primary concern.

All fellows are expected to be thoroughly familiar with and to abide by all policies set forth by the individual institutions at which they rotate.
