This one-year program provides training in structural heart disease procedures for fellows with a completed cardiac catheterization and coronary interventional fellowship.
Igor Palacios, MD
Requirements of the Structural Heart Disease Fellowship Program include:
The patient population in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory allows the fellow to gain knowledge of multiple manifestations of structural heart disease. Fellows rotate through the catheterization laboratory for one year. The objective is to make all fellows’ educational experiences more uniform from month to month. The first time a fellow rotates through the catheterization laboratory, many of the concepts of pathophysiology and management will be new. It is our hope that with repetition of a core didactic session, in addition to clinical experience obtained from prior rotations, the fellow will learn new layers of complexity each time. It is expected that the case mix will vary from month to month, allowing for teaching opportunities outside of those outlined below.
Central to the teaching mission is the use of the resident’s physical diagnostic skills in concert with the array of invasive and non-invasive, diagnostic and therapeutic modalities available. Fellows should become facile with reading electrocardiograms, chest radiographs, hemodynamic tracings and coronary angiograms, vascular angiography and the recognition of basic echocardiographic anatomy.
Next available positions will begin July 1, 2017. To apply, please submit the following documents to Lisa DeFabritiis beginning January 2016:
**Please note that a prior Cardiology Fellowship and Interventional training is a pre-requisite of the program.
