Interventional Cardiology Fellowship

The interventional cardiology fellowship offers training in the most advanced cardiovascular interventional procedures. Clinical experiences in diverse settings such as Rush Oak Park Hospital and John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County will prepare you to provide state-of-the-art care. You’ll build a strong foundation in fundamentals as well as the most current, evidence-based treatments practiced in the rapidly evolving cardiology field.

Our one-year, Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-accredited fellowship offers trainees a wide range of experience and learning, including the following:

  • Building skills in percutaneous coronary intervention and percutaneous peripheral vascular intervention, including renal intervention, aortic intervention, and carotid intervention
  • Practicing the percutaneous treatment of congenital and valvular heart disease
  • Treating patients at both pre- and post-intervention stages
  • Gaining hospital case management experience working with patients undergoing interventional procedures
  • Providing consultative services for patients with peripheral and cerebrovascular disease through the vascular medicine service
  • Pursuing basic science or clinical research in any aspect of interventional cardiology, including but not limited to coronary and peripheral intervention, congenital, and valvular heart disease
  • Participating in single-center and multi-center clinical trials of new interventional cardiovascular treatments, devices and drugs
