Director, Cardiology Fellowship Program

The Cardiology Fellowship Goals and Objectives are:



  • To provide training and experience in the diagnosis and management of patients with cardiovascular conditions including acute myocardial infarction, ischemic heart disease, congestive heart failure, cardiac transplantation, arrhythmias, valvular heart disease, pulmonary hypertension, preventive cardiology, lipid disorders, peripheral vascular disease, infectious and inflammatory heart disease, and adult congenital heart disease. A key component of this training involves the teaching of the pathophysiology and molecular basis of cardiac disease.
  • To provide the intellectual environment in the form of didactic lectures, journal clubs, and interactive sessions for acquiring the knowledge, skills, clinical acumen, and professionalism that are essential for the practice of cardiology.
  • To provide training in an atmosphere that emphasizes outstanding clinical care delivery, humanism, and compassion for patients and their families.
  • To provide this training in a pure academic environment that promotes and emphasizes basic, clinical, and translational research.
  • Most importantly, to provide the foundation for training the future academic leaders, physician scientists, and clinical educators in cardiovascular disease.

The fellows are an essential part of the division and our faculty is categorically committed to training the academic leaders of tomorrow. These Columbia-trained thought leaders in cardiology will play an essential role in bringing new ideas, energy, and perspective to a specialty whose importance will only increase as the population ages.
