Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship

Welcome to the HonorHealth Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship. We are committed to an experience which emphasizes learning over service. The goal of this program is to match the innovative nature of our faculty with bright dedicated learners to change medical care provided locally, regionally, and worldwide.

Founded in 2019 under the auspices of one of the few Masters of SCAI, we have expanded to our full complement of fellows in 2021. Our medical system provides a depth and breadth of cases and learning environments which provide the space to become an excellent clinician and hopefully a leader in the field. Our planned Cardiovascular Center of Excellence will provide a home in the Valley and the region for challenging and interesting cases with which the fellows will be intimately involved.

Our belief is that care systems are responsible for the wellbeing of all including those who participate in them: custodial staff, allied professionals, nurses, respiratory therapists, trainees, attendings, and even the financial structure which supports them. We want to make sure all benefit from the interaction and constantly iterate to improve this. Our fellows are directly involved in helping plan and shape our program with a focus on constant iterative improvement.

Fellows coming here will be expected to exterminate dogma; think both quickly and slowly; participate in research and quality improvement projects, push limits to expand and improve care and cost effectiveness, and most importantly enjoy the embarkment on a lifelong journey of cardiovascular disease care. Learning does not end when you finish fellowship, but instead your training should force your body into a cycle of continued knowledge expansion. We expect that our program will allow you to produce competent, rational, and empathetic care in perpetuity. We welcome you to join us!
