Applying to the Fellowship Program

We sincerely welcome your interest in the Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Training Program of New York Medical College/Westchester Medical Center. Here, we emphasize a strong academic foundation in order to produce outstanding cardiologists in both academic and clinical settings throughout the United States.

After being carefully selected, each fellow is intensively trained in an environment that combines rigorous academic and clinical training with the one-on-one direction and collegiality of a dedicated, full-time faculty. Our goal is to train cardiologists who can provide exceptional leadership and compassionate care in a rapidly changing field.

We offer a robust three-year training program in Cardiovascular Disease, as well as the opportunity to pursue advanced fellowships in Interventional Cardiology (1 year, 1 fellow), Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology (1 year, 1 fellow), and Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology (2 years, 1 fellow/year).

Our trainees rotate through the standard cardiology core curriculum, plus significant elective and research time during the second and third years. We seek applicants with exceptional clinical and teaching skills as well as the ability to learn in a fast-paced environment.

Those interested in applying to the program must do so through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) www.nrmp.org. Applications are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS) using the following link: www.aamc.org/eras.

Please access the Fellowship and Residency Electronic Interactive Database (FREIDA) for more information on our programs.


The Fellowship Selection Committee will review your application after the required materials have been submitted via ERAS. Interviews will take place during the months of September and October (specific dates TBD).
