About Us

The Interventional Cardiology Fellowship Program provides comprehensive training that prepares the trainee for certification.

The program was accredited in 1999 and has graduated one fellow per year since then. All of our fellows have passed the interventional boards. The fellowship provides experience in coronary intervention (including complex stenting, rotational atherectomy, IVUS, intermediate lesion assessment, endothelial dysfunction testing), atrial septal defect and PFO closure, valvuloplasty, and peripheral and carotid intervention. Additionally access and exposure to new devices (such as new stent platforms and the left atrial occlusion device) is provided through an active clinical trial program.

The cath lab performs more than 1,100 PCI per year, and fellows participate in well over 500 PCI. Fellows perform direct STEMI PCI with some of the fastest door-to-balloon times in the country. Dedicated interventional faculty, trained at Mayo, Duke, Cornell, William Beaumont and Geisinger, provide one-on-one mentorship for every case. Abundant research opportunities have recently led to publications on PFO closure, IVUS, STEMI PCI, cardiovascular genomics, and drug-eluting stents. Each year interventional fellows present abstracts at national meetings of the ACC, AHA, or SCAI.  The interventional faculty believe this fellowship offers clinical experience as good as any in the country.
