Interventional Cardiology Fellowship

The Stanford Interventional Cardiology Section offers two-year advanced fellowships, one year, ACGME accredited, of intensive clinical training in invasive therapeutics and possible additional one year of non-accredited research.

Fellows are strongly encouraged to develop an independent research program with financial support. This focus may range from basic science to purely clinical research. Faculty from not only interventional cardiology but also from within the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine may act as mentors.

The clinical training involves not only angioplasty and stenting but also advanced techniques in atherectomy, intravascular ultrasound, and other devices. The training is demanding, and a high level of performance is expected. We do not currently offer training in peripheral interventions.
We accept US and overseas-trained fellows, but for foreign-trained fellows the proper visa and other documentation is required (see section on non-US applicants). They must be USMLE-certified and speak fluent English. Prospective overseas applicants should visit the ECFMG website for further information.

To apply, please send a letter of intent including the planned years of training and intended research plan. In addition, a CV and three letters of recommendation should be sent. You may download an application here. The application should be returned to:

Faculty and fellows share personal insights into what makes them excited about being at Stanford - including diverse research interests, breadth and depth of training and clinical experiences, life in the Bay Area, robust mentor-mentee relationships, and learning how to be a leader in Cardiovascular Medicine.
