The Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, is designed for a board-eligible or board-certified cardiology or pulmonary/critical care physician who desires additional training and expertise in the evaluation and management of pulmonary vascular disease.
This one-year program will include exposure to clinical research in varied aspects of pulmonary vascular disease and fellows will have dedicated time for research and scholarly activities.
As a PH fellow, you will play an integral role in the longitudinal management of patients with PH, to include the initial diagnostic evaluation, chronic outpatient management, and the inpatient management of right ventricular failure. You will spend the majority of your time evaluating and managing patients in pulmonary hypertension clinic but will also:
Conduct inpatient pulmonary hypertension consultations
Perform right heart catheterizations
Rotate in other specialties, including heart failure, congenital heart disease, and heart/lung transplant
Develop skills in the interpretation of echocardiography and chest imaging, including chest computed tomography, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and ventilation-perfusion scans
Engage in scholarly activity under the supervision of expert faculty
Through the fellowship, you will also have opportunities to pursue electives in varied areas, such as rheumatology, cardiopulmonary exercise testing, and liver-lung disorders.
Our PH fellows will play an integral role in the longitudinal management of patients with PH, to include the initial diagnostic evaluation, chronic outpatient management, management of right ventricular failure, and end-of-life care.
Highlights of the fellowship include:
- A favorable faculty ratio
- A large patient population
- State-of-the-art diagnostic, therapeutic, and research facilities
- A truly integrated and comprehensive educational experience
The Pulmonary Hypertension Fellowship is an unaccredited program.
The Pulmonary Hypertension Fellowship at Mayo Clinic began in July 2020. One fellow will complete training in this program annually.
The goal of our fellowship is to provide education, training, and mentorship so that fellows can acquire knowledge and understanding of the physiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of pulmonary vascular disease.”
