Our faculty have provided fellowship training for more than five decades. Our academic and teaching responsibilities are dedicated to helping the next generation of cardiac physicians become national leaders, while we continue to enhance the efficiency of cardiovascular medicine.
For those interested in pursuing a research-focused academic career in Cardiology, a dedicated research track is available in the Cardiovascular Disease Program. This program includes two dedicated years in research followed by two core clinical years.
See Graduate Medical Education at the University of Vermont/Fletcher Allen Health Care to learn more about this program.
Cardiovascular Disease - Starting in 1956, the Fellowship in Cardiovascular Disease has provided post-residency training to physicians in the cognitive care of patients with cardiovascular disease as well as the performance and interpretation of invasive and noninvasive cardiac imaging, including cardiac catheterization, electrophysiologic studies, holter monitors, echocardiograms, stress tests, and newer technologies such as PET/CT and cardiac MRI.
Cardiac Electrophysiology - The Fellowship in Cardiac Electrophysiology provides its trainees with experience in the latest techniques in the treatment of simple and complex cardiac arrhythmia, including complex ablations for atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. Trainees also learn to implant the most sophisticated cardioverter defibrillators and pacemakers. The program has at its core a strong emphasis on education and research.
Interventional Cardiology - The Fellowship in Interventional Cardiologywas among the first ACGME-certified interventional programs in New England in 1998. With six core faculty, this one–year program exposes its trainees to cutting–edge research and techniques in the treatment of heart attack, coronary artery disease, aortic valve stenosis, peripheral vascular disease and structural/congenital heart disease.
