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 program, as well as the opportunity of fourth year advanced fellowships in interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, and heart failure and transplantation. 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.
