Ascension St. John Hospital Cardiology Fellowship

The general cardiology fellowship offers a 28-month core curriculum and 8-months of electives. The curriculum is structured to meet the standards of the ACGME and the ACC.

The core curriculum rotations include:

  • 5 months in the CICU
  • 5 months on the inpatient consultation service
  • 4 months in the cardiac cath lab
  • 6 months in the non-invasive laboratory
  • 2 months on the EPS service
  • 1-2 months in nuclear cardiology and heart failure/transplant
  • Minimum of 2 months of research

Rotations have been developed in Preventive Cardiology and Peripheral Vascular Disease. In addition, each fellow spends half a day per week in an outpatient ambulatory continuity clinic.

Elective rotations include but are not limited to heart failure and transplant cardiology, adult and pediatric congenital cardiology, cardiology research, and special tutorials in nuclear medicine. Many fellows elect additional time in the catheterization or non-invasive laboratories.
