The purpose of the UA College of Medicine – Phoenix Cardiology Fellowship Program is to provide an opportunity for acquiring the knowledge and clinical judgment necessary to practice cardiovascular medicine. Graduates of this program must have demonstrated professional ability and competence to enter practice independently without direct supervision. A goal of the fellowship is to teach trainees to provide optimal medical care for each patient consistent with current guidelines.
The fellowship provides broad exposure to acute and chronic cardiovascular diseases, emphasizing accurate ambulatory and bedside clinical diagnosis, appropriate use of diagnostic studies and integration of all data into a well communicated consultation, with sensitivity to the unique features of each individual patient. Active participation in research projects provides the trainee with further experience in critical thinking and in evaluating the cardiology literature.
