Interventional Cardiology Fellowship
The Interventional Cardiology Fellowship at Boston Medical Center (BMC) is a one-year, ACGME-accredited fellowship. We accept two applicants.
- The primary goal of the Boston Medical Center (BMC) Interventional Cardiology Fellowship Program is to provide comprehensive training in the field of Interventional Cardiology.
- Trainees will develop the requisite procedural skills, cognitive clinical knowledge, judgment, and professionalism required to practice the subspecialty of Interventional Cardiology.
- At the completion of the BMC training program, trainees will have acquired the necessary competency and meet requirements for certification in interventional cardiology, as determined by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and the American Board of Internal Medicine.
- Fellows are exposed to peripheral vascular diagnostic and interventional procedures, and structural heart interventional procedures, during their training
- In order to provide trainees with exposure to the practice of Interventional Cardiology in the community setting, a rotation is established at Good Samaritan Medical Center, a local, community hospital.
- At Good Samaritan Medical Center, fellows will receive training and supervision in the evaluation, management, and interventional treatment of a wide variety of acute and chronic cardiovascular conditions, typical of a community-based, non-referral population.
- At Good Samaritan Medical Center, fellows will gain a perspective on patient selection and clinical decision-making in the care of patients in the catheterization laboratory of a community hospital.
Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology
The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship Program at Boston Medical Center / Boston University Medical Center is a two-year ACGME certified program.
To develop future leaders in academic clinical cardiac electrophysiology. To achieve this goal, we promote the development of outstanding clinical skills and provide research training at the highest level. This training in the evaluation, management and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias including diagnostic electrophysiology studies and catheter ablation (radiofrequency and cryoablation) and training in the implantation and management of cardiac devices including pacemakers, implantable cardiac defibrillators, cardiac resynchronization devices and implantable loop recorders. Fellows will also receive training in laser lead extraction, leadless pacemaker implantation, His bundle pacing, and Watchman device implantation.
Trainees will participate in a continuity arrhythmia clinic throughout the year. Upon completion of the fellowship program, fellows will be eligible for a certificate in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology from the American Board of Internal Medicine. All fellows will meet American College of Cardiology COCATS3 requirements for Board Certification.
