Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program
John Dent, MD, Director
UVA's Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program offers two paths for completing an ACGME-accredited cardiovascular disease fellowship. The four-year research/clinical program is designed for fellows who want to pursue a career in academic medicine as physician-scientists. The three-year clinical training program is geared towards those who want careers as cardiologists in private practice; fellows are encouraged to undertake shortened research projects in their areas of interest.
All fellows participate in a world-class outpatient clinic during at least three of their four years. Fellows are matched with a team of attendings, nurses, and administrative support personnel with whom they remain throughout their training.
Cardiovascular disease fellows may continue their training at UVA with ACGME-accredited advanced cardiac fellowships in interventional cardiology, heart failure and transplant, or clinical cardiac electrophysiology. We also offer a two-year fellowship in advanced cardiac imaging. All training programs are conducted at a single hospital location with state-of-the-art facilities and educational opportunities, among a collegial group of faculty who are committed to the teaching mission.
