OSU Medical Center

Cardiology Fellowship

Program Description
The cardiovascular disease fellowship at OSUMC is a three year program which focuses on training expert clinical cardiologists. Residents will get a broad exposure to different aspects of cardiovascular diagnosis and therapeutics including cardiac catheterization, electrophysiologic testing, and non-invasive testing including echocardiography, nuclear and exercise electrocardiographic testing.

The program consists of eight months of clinical cardiology, four months of echocardiography, four months of non-invasive stress testing, four months of cardiac catheterization, two months of electrophysiology and twelve months of specialized training tailored to the interest of the resident including additional months in catheterization, electrophysiology, critical care, nuclear cardiology, transplant and heart failure, lipid management and peripheral vascular disease.

Outpatient services exceed the minimum requirement for continuity of care training. Residents will consult and manage patients from the community and within the OSU Healthcare system. The supervised clinic is an excellent opportunity for residents to perform non-invasive outpatient stress testing for at-risk patients at the new Houston Parke Clinic located across the street from OSU Medical Center. Cardiovascular Disease residents work closely with residents from the Internal Medicine and Family Practice programs.

Didactic education is provided through structured reading programs, lecture series, national cadiology conferences covering a variety of sub-specialty topics, morbidity and mortality review, grand rounds and a weekly catheterization conference attended by all attending cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons and surgery residents. All residents will submit at least one research paper during their three years of training. The program will make residents eligible to sit for the ACOI Subspecialty certifying examination.
