Fellowship in Cardiovascular Medicine
The Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center welcomes your interest in our clinical and Research fellowship training program.
A Message from Robert Gerszten, MD
Chief, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine
Looking back at recent advances in the field of cardiovascular medicine, the developments of the past two decades are nothing short of miraculous. Driven by sophisticated new technologies and research breakthroughs, cardiac care has developed and been refined at an unprecedented pace. Emerging investigations at the molecular level–from the sequencing of the human genome to the widespread use of proteomics–are helping to illuminate the roots of heart disease, pointing us in new directions as we continue to develop improved treatments and diagnostics.
As a major teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, BIDMC offers cardiovascular fellows a unique set of resources and an ideal environment in which to take advantage of this exciting era in cardiac medicine. Known for its exemplary patient care and safety and quality initiatives, BIDMC is also a national and international leader in biomedical research and in medical education. The carefully structured clinical curriculum of our fellowship program is strengthened by a highly accomplished faculty, committed to helping trainees achieve their maximum potential.
Our program'sinvestment in multidisciplinary clinical training and research – spanning basic and translational opportunities and assessment of clinical outcomes in our recently opened Smith Center–provides fellows with a solid foundation on which to build their futures. Our mission is to continue this tradition of excellence by attracting promising men and women to careers in academic cardiology.
Joseph Kannam, MD, Fellowship Program Director
BIDMC's Fellowship Program in Cardiovascular Medicine is among the nation's top programs in graduate medical education. It has produced many leaders in both clinical and research cardiovascular medicine.
The breadth of our training opportunities begins with our general cardiology fellowship and extends to advanced ACGME fellowships in cardiac electrophysiology , interventional cardiology, advanced non-invasive imaging and basic and translational research. The Cardiovascular Fellowship provides extensive training in cardiovascular patient care. We pair our fellows with research and clinical mentors early in their training to assure their academic development.
BIDMC's leading-edge resources and facilities provide trainees with a rich patient care experience. We are committed to providing medical students, housestaff, and fellows with unique opportunities for personal and intellectual growth.
