Cardiology Fellowship http://www.einstein.edu/medicine/cardiology/education/article6142.html
The cardiology fellowship curriculum is structured to
provide well-rounded training in all aspects of the
In the first year of fellowship, fellows spend two
months on the cardiology teaching consult service, two
months on the cardiac catheterization service, three
months on the non-invasive service (including echocardiography, nuclear cardiology,
and stress imaging), two months in the cardiac care unit, one month on the
electrophysiology service, one month of elective time, and one month on research.
On the cardiology consult service, fellows perform primary consultations on teaching
service patients admitted to the Medical Center. Since a private attending does not
follow these patients, the fellow has greater autonomy in recommending diagnostic and
therapeutic measures. On the cardiac catheterization service, fellows perform
introductory cardiac catheterization and learn the basics of catheterization such as
arterial sheath placement, right heart catheterization and placement of temporary
pacemakers. During the non-invasive rotation, fellows are involved in both the basics of
performing and interpreting echocardiographic procedures as well as basic stress ECG.
In the coronary care unit and consult service, fellows are responsible for supervising
and teaching medical residents and students, and learning to achieve the high level of
professionalism necessary to interact effectively with patients, families, and other health
professionals. On the electrophysiology service fellows perform arrhythmia consults,
review electrophysiologic studies and are introduced into the EP lab.
In the second year of fellowship, fellows spend two months on the telemetry service, two
months on the cardiac catheterization service, two months on the electrophysiology
service, one month on the non-invasive service, one month in the CCU, one month on
the congestive heart failure service, two months of elective time, and one month on
On the telemetry service fellows supervise medical residents, interns and medical
students. The cardiology fellow performs as a junior attending under the direct
supervision of the telemetry teaching attending developing the knowledge base,
interactive skills, technical skills, and learning attitudes to provide high-level care to
adult patients with the most common forms of heart disease.
On the non-invasive services fellows master more advanced echocardiographic skills
such as treadmill and Dobutamine echocardiography, independent performance of
echocardiography, introduction to transesophageal echocardiograms, and nuclear
cardiology interpretation. On the electrophysiology service fellows receive advanced
instruction in radio frequency ablations, interpretation of Holter monitors and event
recorders, ECG interpretation and permanent pacemaker follow-up.
The third year of fellowship allows for significant elective time to be arranged to serve
the educational needs of the individual trainee. During the third year fellows spend one
month in the CCU, two months on the nuclear cardiology rotation, one month on the
vascular service, one month in the non-invasive laboratory, one month on research, and
six months of elective time. The elective time is flexible, allowing the fellow the
opportunity to complete a research project and/or acquire specialized skills in either
non-invasive cardiology such as CT/MR, echocardiography, electrophysiology, nuclear
medicine, or further develop skills in diagnostic cardiac catheterization.
Due to the structure of the program, graduating fellows will be level II certified in
cardiac catheterization, echocardiography and nuclear cardiology. Opportunities are
available in the third year to become level III certified in echcardiography or level II
certified in cardiac CT.
