Clinical Rotations

Our training program provides our fellows with a depth of clinical experience, covering all clinical and laboratory experiences including the following:

  • Adult Congenital Heart Disease
  • Cardiac CT/Magnetic Resonance Imaging  
  • Cardiology Clinic
  • Cardiothoracic Surgery
  • Coronary care unit
  • Consultation service
  • Echocardiography
  • Electrophysiology
  • Heart Failure
  • Hypertension
  • Interventional Cardiology
  • Nuclear Cardiology 
  • Vascular imaging  


Virtually all clinical experiences are achieved within the first two years of training, as are the COCATS 3 requirements for procedural competencies. Fellows gain level 2 training in echocardiography and nuclear cardiology within the first two years. The majority of the third year is elective, allowing fellows to round out their clinical experiences according to their personal preferences, concentrate on research developed in their first two years of training, and/or seek specific additional expertise in given sub-specialty areas of cardiology, such as echocardiography, nuclear, cath, CT/MR imaging, EP, or Interventional Cardiology.      

The general distribution of rotations, by year, is listed below. Note that the listed length of rotation is an approximation, generally varying by ±0.5 months or sometimes more for a given rotation for a given year. Some flexibility in scheduling is possible in the first two years of training for fellows with specific training goals.
