Training Programs

The University of Virginia Health Sciences Center has a strong commitment to excellent patient care, teaching, and clinical and basic research.  The new University of Virginia hospital opened in 1989. This facility includes modern spacious clinical laboratories, patient care units, and fellow work areas.

Basic Clinical Program

Our goal is to instruct fellows in evidence-based prevention, diagnosis, and management of patients with a wide variety of acute and chronic cardiovascular conditions.  Our training reflects the standards of the American Board of Internal Medicine, the American College of Cardiology, and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Program Requirements for Residency Education in Cardiovascular Disease.

Advanced Research Programs

Our research facilities are extensive and include laboratories for large animal surgery, cellular electrophysiology, smooth muscle research, and animal catheterization.

Cardiovascular research holds enormous promise to bring new and innovative strategies in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease.  Physicians who have already completed their basic subspecialty training in cardiovascular medicine may seek addition training in the following programs.
