Applying to the Fellowship Program


ERAS deadline date:  July 31, 2016
Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center Cardiology Fellowship Program

We welcome your interest in the Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Training Program of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons/New York-Presbyterian Hospital. We are very excited about our restructured clinical program here in the Cardiology Division, and wish to share with you some of the opportunities that are available for you to explore.

We offer two general cardiology fellowship tracks: the clinical track and the research track.

The goal of the clinical track is to develop highly trained clinician educators and physician scientists. The track now consists of three years of training, which include the standard two year core curriculum, six months of additional clinical rotations, and six months of research. We seek applicants with outstanding clinical and teaching skills as well as research potential. 

The goal of the research track is to develop highly skilled and committed physician-scientists who will go on to develop independent lines of investigation and funding of their own. The track consists of the standard two year core curriculum, plus an additional two years of research sponsored by a competitive NIH training grant. The additional two years must be dedicated to intensive basic or patient-oriented research with early identification of a mentor.  The research may be performed with an investigator within the division or with any number of highly qualified investigators throughout Columbia in an interdisciplinary fashion. We seek applicants with outstanding clinical credentials who have demonstrated a track record of passion, skill and productivity in research.

Opportunities for advanced fellowships are available in cardiac electrophysiology, interventional cardiology, echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, advanced cardiac imaging, adult congenital heart disease, and heart failure and transplantation. Applicants should contact the head of the appropriate sub-division for more information.

Good luck in the application process, and feel free to contact us (see below) if you require any additional information or would like to be put in touch with any of our investigators.
