- Advanced training in specialized clinical disciplines
The Division of Cardiology currently has more than 35 clinical fellows in its various programs, drawn from the top medical schools in the country.
All of our clinical programs emphasize state-of-the-art clinical training with excellent volumes and faculty supervision, integrated with didactic instruction and innovative research. Postdoctoral research fellows will find a broad range of training opportunities in several laboratories, with the major thrust of the basic science research focusing on cardiomyocyte biology.
