Cardiovascular Medicine

Cardiovascular Medicine Fellowship


I believe that our fellowship program is the "crown jewel" of our academic cardiovascular program at MCW. Sandwiched between the residency years and full independence, our fellows hone their unique skills across the clinical spectrum, forging that final common pathway to last a lifetime. We relentlessly focus on providing our fellows with the scholarly tools they need to be proactive – instead of reactive – to the changing landscape of cardiovascular medicine.

As we begin this journey with our current and future fellows and their as yet "undefined" talent, we redouble our efforts – over coffee, lunch or dinner – to get to know and appreciate their aspirations. Such bidirectional exchanges can be brimming with opportunities for our fellows to help us reach our goal of being recognized as one of the elite academic cardiovascular program in the country. In turn, we believe these investments in our fellows will likely result in many outstanding performances, enhancing their paths to becoming junior faculty and health care leaders.
