Cardiovascular Fellowship Training Program
Mark Josephson, MD, Chief, Division of Cardiology
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 physiological breakthroughs, cardiac care has developed and been refined at an unprecedented pace. Furthermore, 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, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center 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's strong investment in multidisciplinary training and research provides fellows with a solid foundation on which to build their futures and it is our objective to continue this tradition of excellence by attracting promising men and women to careers in academic cardiology.
Joseph Kannam, MD, Program Director, Cardiovascular Fellowship
On behalf of the faculty of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Division of Cardiology, we welcome your interest in our Clinical and Research Fellowship Training Program in Cardiovascular Disease.
Long ranked among the nation's top programs in graduate medical education, BIDMC's Cardiovascular Fellowship Program has produced many leaders in both clinical and research arenas. Our breadth of training opportunities extends from advanced ACGME fellowships in cardiac electrophysiology and interventional cardiology to in-depth experience in basic and translational research and advanced noninvasive imaging.
Combining clinical and research experience over three years, the Cardiovascular Medicine Fellowship includes intensive training in cardiovascular patient care. Our commitment to academic, scholarly activity is equally as strong; fellows are paired with research and clinical mentors early in their training experience so that they may be aided in developing productive and satisfying careers.
BIDMC's leading-edge resources and facilities provide trainees with a rich patient care experience. Our teaching affiliation with Harvard Medical School and commitment to medical student, housestaff, and fellow education affords numerous opportunities for personal and intellectual growth.
