Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship
The three-year, full-time Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) provides comprehensive clinical and academic training. The program curriculum covers all aspects of noninvasive and invasive clinical cardiology and offers substantial teaching and research opportunities.
The cardiology fellowship program emphasizes the balance of clinical care, innovative teaching and productive scientific endeavors as crucial to achieving our mission of providing the optimal training experience for the cardiovascular subspecialists of the future.
The Cardiology division participates as a key component of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Heart and Vascular Center which offers coordinated patient care, training and research across the disciplines of cardiology, vascular surgery, cardiothoracic surgery and cardiovascular interventional radiology and imaging. Aligned with the clinical enterprise is the Heart and Vascular Center Basic Science Research Laboratories which conduct bench and animal preclinical research studies. Other areas of research interest include cardiac epidemiology, outcomes and decision-analysis, therapeutic catheterization, device development, echocardiography and electrophysiology.
The mission of our program is to provide training that readies graduates for competent, evidence-based and ethical care of patients with cardiovascular disorders. Our clinical and academic training prepares fellows for careers in clinical practice, education and research.
Our program trains fellows to be:
- competent, skilled clinicians capable of providing specialty care for patients with cardiovascular disorders
- confident consumers of the medical literature to optimize career-long learning
- ethical practitioners; and
- active contributors to their local medical communities and the larger academic cardiovascular community.
