Overview

Mayo Clinic interventional cardiologists completing a procedure

Program description

The Interventional Cardiology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, is a two-year training program that provides a broad-based learning experience in all aspects of interventional cardiology.

You receive high-quality education in patient evaluation, technical performance of simple and complex interventional procedures (including appropriate use of hemodynamic support), and post-procedural management, as well as opportunities for clinical teaching and research.

The first year consists of an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited interventional cardiology program with emphasis on coronary intervention. The second year focuses on valvular and other cardiac structural interventions.

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 role 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.

Accreditation

This program fulfills the training requirements for interventional cardiology as defined by the American Board of Internal Medicine and the first year is accredited by ACGME.

Certification

After successfully completing the program, you are eligible to take the subspecialty Interventional Cardiology Certification Exam offered by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Program history

The Interventional Cardiology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, began in 1999. We anticipate that three fellows will complete this program annually.
