General Cardiology Fellowship

Cardiology Fellowship Program

We thank you for your interest in our general cardiology fellowship program.  Our mission is to provide outstanding training required for a successful career as a cardiologist.  We accept 6 fellows per year to our ACGME accredited three-year general cardiology training program.  The foundation of our fellowship training relies on the tremendous depth and breadth of our clinical care.  

Within an academic teaching environment composed of Loyola University Medical Center and VA Hines Medical Center, our fellows are exposed to a high volume of challenging cases.  Our Division of Cardiology provides comprehensive tertiary care in all aspects of cardiovascular medicine including electrophysiology, advanced heart failure/cardiac transplantation, interventional cardiology, advanced cardiac imaging, and lipidology/preventive cardiology.  

In addition to the diverse clinical training, fellows are provided a broad-based core curriculum aimed to provide them with the strong knowledge base to practice cardiovascular medicine.  Research training is an integral part of our fellowship.  All fellows are expected to complete a formal reseach project during their training. We have structured our program to allow fellows to have an outstanding training experience tailored to their individual career interests.
