The Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Arizona is designed to provide intensive experience and training in the evaluation and treatment of patients with advanced heart failure.

As an Advanced Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplant fellow, you will play an integral role in the management of a wide pathological spectrum of clinical heart failure, including:

  • Initial diagnostic evaluation
  • Chronic management strategies
  • High-risk cardiac surgical and percutaneous interventions
  • Cardiac transplantation
  • Mechanical circulatory support
  • End-of-life care and management

This one-year program includes exposure to clinical research in the field of heart failure and cardiac transplantation.

Mayo Clinic has a long-standing tradition of practicing both the art and science of medicine. Physicians, scientists, residents, students, nurses, and allied health staff members work as a team at Mayo Clinic. Our staff clinicians and scientists are called consultants in recognition of their teaching and mentoring roles on the team. 

Mayo Clinic's academic environment, favorable faculty ratio, large patient population, and state-of-the-art diagnostic, therapeutic, and research facilities combine to create a truly integrated and comprehensive educational experience. The "Mayo Clinic way" of graduate medical education ensures the finest teaching and the broadest patient care experience possible during a busy, hands-on fellowship.
