Mount Sinai Morningside Cardiology Fellowship

The Division of Cardiology at Mount Sinai Morningside is a remarkable place with engaged faculty, ambitious fellows, and growing clinical services. The program is led by Sean Pinney, MD an internationally recognized leader in Cardiology and Heart Failure, who emphasizes excellent patient care while nurturing the training of future leaders in the field of Cardiology. Steeped in a tradition as Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital, the Hospital was renamed as Mount Sinai Morningside in February of 2020 to convey our strong commitment to the local Morningside community surrounding our Institution.

As a part of the Mount Sinai Health System, our Hospital has transitioned into a rapidly expanding center of cardiovascular excellence. Our program includes robust interventional and structural programs, the region’s most active critical care cardiology program, and excellent programs in electrophysiology, heart failure, cardiac imaging, and ambulatory clinical care. Future directions within the division include geriatric and critical care cardiology fellowship training, cardiac rehabilitation programs, and expanding research initiatives. The clinical volume is paramount, with a new fellowship track added in 2020 to reflect the division's growth and to celebrate a renewed relationship with the Bronx Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center. The Cardiology fellowship training programs are at the heart of this division.
