How do I apply?

The general cardiology program uses the standard ERAS common application form, but some of our specialty programs do not use ERAS. Application requirements can be found on the Application Process page.

What is the deadline for the application?

Our deadlines differ from program to program. Please see the Application Process page for details.

When do you typically conduct interviews?

We typically conduct interviews on Fridays in September and October.

What are the clinical rotations in the program?

The two-year clinical core rotations are a combination of ward rotations and clinical lab rotations. See the Clinical Rotations page for details.

What is the call schedule like?

In an approximately "every fourth night rotation" during their clinical service months, fellows take night and weekend coverage. They generally spend four to six months during their first year and one to two months during their second year on this "every-fourth" call rotation. While on the exercise, catheterization laboratory and echocardiography rotations, they take minimal call.

Does the program admit trainees on a visa?

Yes, the program admits trainees with either a J-1 or H1-B visa. For more information, see the Application Process page.
