Cardiology Fellowship Overview: Urban Community
To meet the challenging needs of health care delivery, the Urban Community Cardiology Fellowship Training Program at Icahn School of Medicine is designed to train clinical cardiologists for careers in the delivery of cardiac care in the community. This is accomplished with academic rigor and with strong links to the investigator track (older Mount Sinai program). Trainees are expected to possess clinical and intellectual skills comparable to those in the older training program (investigator track). The major difference in trainees in the new program is their interest in careers in clinical cardiology rather than basic science and academic leadership.
The program is designed to attract trainees interested in pursuing careers in clinical cardiology. Although based at The Mount Sinai Hospital (an academic tertiary care center), fellows spend considerable time at Elmhurst Hospital Center (an academic community hospital). It is our belief that this balance provides the environment for intellectual growth and best utilizes the outstanding resources available in both clinical experience and cardiovascular research.
