The Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship is designed to fulfill the ACC COCATS requirements. Our yearly program will have 13, 4-week block rotations.
The first two (2) years of the fellowship will focus on the required 24 months of clinical training.
The third year of fellowship will include rotations allowing completion of COCATS level 2 training in echocardiography and nuclear medicine, clinical consultative cardiology, and up to 6 months of elective time, tailored to each fellow’s career choice.
