Welcome to the Clinical Cardiovascular Training Program of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Our program focuses on preparing fellows for careers as outstanding clinicians, scholars, and leaders through rigorous, comprehensive training in all aspects of cardiovascular medicine. Fellows enjoy broad exposure to the diverse patient populations at the Elmhurst Hospital Center in Queens and The Mount Sinai Medical Center on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, where the program is based.
Created to meet changing healthcare needs, the program offers balanced strength in all aspects of cardiovascular training. With close ties to the older Mount Sinai Academic Track program, which focuses on basic and clinical science, the Clinical Track program provides opportunities to engage in cardiovascular research at Mount Sinai’s Zena and Michael A. Weiner Cardiovascular Institute, directed by Valentin Fuster, M.D., Ph.D. The research institute and its clinical counterpart, Mount Sinai Heart, integrate programs and services that span the entire spectrum of the cardiovascular field.
To complement rotations at this internationally renowned academic health science center, fellows spend considerable time at the Elmhurst Hospital Center, an academic municipal hospital operated by the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation and a primary teaching affiliate of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Located in the Borough of Queens, arguably the world’s most culturally diverse community, Elmhurst Hospital provides the hands-on involvement that is crucial to developing procedural skills and clinical confidence. It is our belief that the combination of mentored experiences in these environments promotes independence, intellectual growth, and professional excellence. We take enormous pride in the training of our fellows, who are the best ambassadors for the program.
