Research Training

After two years of core rotations, you will finish your fellowship with one year each of research and electives. These years are tailored to individual interests and goals. Although you will participate in research activities throughout your entire fellowship, this additional year of research allows you to gain significant experience in a particular basic science or clinical subspecialty area.

Subspecialty research positions are available in the following basic sciences:

  • Cardiovascular Imaging
  • Cardiovascular Molecular Biology
  • Electrophysiology
  • Epidemiology

Your clinical subspecialty research options include:

  • Adult Congenital Heart Disease Clinic
  • Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory
  • Cardiac Imaging
  • Echocardiography Laboratory
  • Electrophysiology Laboratory
  • Heart Failure Clinic and Transplant Service
  • Hemodynamics
  • Nuclear Medicine Laboratory

Our cardiovascular fellows have consistently succeeded in publishing the results of their research; approximately 60 papers and abstracts are published by fellows each year. Our fellows also have received many national awards, including the American College of Cardiology Young Investigators Award, American College of Cardiology/Merck Scholarship, American College of Cardiology/Bristol Laboratories Travel Award and the North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology Young Investigators Award.
