Medical College of Wisconsin Advanced Cardiac Imaging Fellowship

The fellowship will focus on advanced echocardiographic (including intra-operative TEE and structural imaging experience such as LAAO occluder, MitraClip, Tricuspid Clasp/clip, PFO/ASD/VSD closure) and cardiac MRI imaging (including stress, congenital (including rotations at Children's Wisconsin CMR congenital group), and intracardiac devices) with options for increased nuclear and computerized tomography exposure. Upon completion of fellowship, the fellow will be considered Level III in both echocardiography and cardiac MRI as delineated in the ACC/AHA COCATS 4 document (with optional additional focus in CT or nuclear). The fellow will have an active role in cardiology fellow and resident training. Didactic teaching sessions with the cardiology fellowship provide a comprehensive review of multimodality cardiac imaging.
