For Health Professionals

Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship

Christiana Care offers an academic and clinical fellowship in cardiovascular medicine. This fully accredited, three-year program provides superior, “hands on” training for physicians who wish to become highly skilled clinical cardiologists as well as educators and investigators in cardiovascular disease. Successful candidates will develop the ability to provide high quality care in an environment where value outcomes are increasingly becoming the “bottom line.” The program prepares the fellow to proceed onto a fourth year fellowship in subspecialties such as electrophysiology, interventional cardiology, echocardiography and cardiac imaging.

Drawing from a wide range of patient care experiences, a broad-based curriculum incorporates the latest advances in preventive cardiology and cardiovascular medicine. Fellows will be trained in patient management as well as in all invasive and non-invasive diagnostic and therapeutic modalities. Since Christiana Care is the largest teaching affiliate of Jefferson Medical College there is ample opportunity to teach residents and medical students in a variety of settings. Over the course of the three-year fellowship, six months will be devoted to research.

Our aim is to prepare clinical cardiologists to provide state-of-the-art cardiovascular care that recognizes the shared humanity between doctor and patient, family and loved ones. Our philosophy in educating physicians now and for the future combines excellence in patient care with excellence in scholarship.
