Interventional Cardiology Fellowship
The mission of the Interventional Cardiology fellowship is to provide comprehensive, high quality procedural training to cardiologists in order that they may administer exceptional, compassionate care to patients in community and/or academic settings.
The HonorHealth interventional cardiology fellowship program is tailored to accomplish a realistic vision for enhancing the training experience of our fellows. Trainees will develop a broad set of sub-specialty clinical skills and graduate with expertise in all facets of the following:
- Advanced coronary intervention
- Mechanical circulatory support
- Structural heart intervention including valvular and non-valvular therapies
- Research and clinical investigation
- Novel innovations in interventional cardiology
The Interventional Cardiology fellowship is affiliated with the Honor Health Cardiovascular Disease fellowship. The programs work in concert with each other for the improvement of patient care, research, and education for all trainees.
Interventional fellows will participate in the Scottsdale Interventional Forum (SIF), a nationally recognized continuing medical education course.
Our program is 12 months in length and can be undertaken after completion of a cardiovascular fellowship. Two fellows will be enrolled in the fellowship training program at any one time.
