The one-year Cardiac Amyloid Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, provides an opportunity for fellows to develop expertise in the diagnosis and management of cardiac amyloidosis while fostering opportunities for clinical research to advance the science and improve patient outcomes.
Our vision is to meet the rapidly rising demand for such a specialist who may serve as a regional or national expert in the field of cardiac amyloidosis. The curriculum will be tailored to the interests of the fellow to allow in-depth training in cardio-oncology as well as other causes of cardiomyopathy, such as sarcoidosis, if desired.
Mayo Clinic has been an internationally recognized amyloidosis center for over half a century having evaluated over 8,000 amyloidosis patients and contributed many landmark publications.
The cardiac amyloid research program at is a national and international leader in recruitment to clinical trials of emerging therapies.
As a cardiac amyloidosis fellow, you play an integral role in the management of a wide spectrum of cardiac amyloidosis. This includes:
- Diagnostic and treatment strategies
- Follow-up of patients undergoing autologous stem cell transplantation
- Referral for cardiac transplantation
- Close collaboration with a multi-disciplinary team, especially hematology
This one-year program includes exposure to clinical research in the field of cardiac amyloidosis, including opportunities for training in clinical trial management
Mayo Clinic has a long-standing tradition of practicing both the art and science of medicine.

Our staff clinicians and scientists are called consultants in recognition of their teaching and mentoring roles on the team.
Mayo'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.
