Cardiology Fellowship Overview: Investigator Track
The goal of the Investigator Track Fellowship Training Program is to produce well-rounded academic cardiologists; that is, physician-scientists who will be cardiovascular clinicians, teachers and researchers. Fellows achieve clinical excellence by completing rotations within our clinical care service, Mount Sinai Heart, and interacting closely with our renowned faculty. Our laboratories add to this foundation of clinical excellence by exposing fellows to the latest advances in cardiovascular research.
Fellows who wish to participate in basic science research projects can work with the Molecular and Cellular Cardiology Program, with support from an NIH Training Grant. Many of our fellows have successfully competed for prestigious NIH, AHA and ACC fellowships and have gone on to become leaders in academic cardiology.
The Program recruits a range of fellows whose career interests lie in clinical cardiology (including clinical research) or in basic science research. Fellows work closely with faculty members to develop effective, individualized learning plans to ensure the attainment of clinical competency and active participation in scholarly activity.
