Welcome to the Duke Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Programs.

The Fellowship Program includes the general ACGME Cardiovascular Disease program and, for fellows who have successfully completed an ACGME Cardiovascular Disease fellowship program, ACGME-accredited advanced training programs in Interventional Cardiology, Electrophysiology, Advanced Heart Failure and Transplantation, and Adult Congenital Heart Disease.

We have over 40 outstanding fellows among these programs. All of our programs emphasize state-of-the-art clinical training with excellent volumes and faculty supervision, integrated with didactic instruction and innovative research. We strive to achieve a balance between outstanding clinical training and research opportunities and mentorship in a collaborative environment. We greatly value our fellows as important contributors to our highly-ranked Heart Center and are very proud of their consistent accomplishments in clinical care, research, and education during fellowship and into their careers.  Our fellows remain our lifelong colleagues. 

As the Program Director, I hope that the information provides you with an overview of our training program, details about our current curriculum and objectives for our fellows, and an appreciation of the many unique opportunities here. As you consider your choice of fellowship programs, we hope that your individual goals and priorities can be catalyzed here at Duke. If you have any questions about our program, please feel free to contact me.
