Cardiovascular disease continues to be the leading cause of death in the United States and will continue its steady increase as predisposing factors become more prevalent in the American population. Definitive treatment of cardiovascular disease is through lifestyle modification in concert with medical management. Although cardiac rehabilitation is the most effective gateway to comprehensive secondary prevention this remains an underutilized resource in the fight against heart disease worldwide.
Training for our one-year, unaccredited Cardiac Rehabilitation Fellowship Program will include primary management of the in-patient Cardiac Rehabilitation consult service. This service follows patient care from immediately following cardiac event through hospital discharge and referral to outpatient cardiac rehabilitation. The oversight of a system to ensure continuity of care will be a primary responsibility of the fellow in the first half of the academic year. The second half of the academic year responsibilities will extend to the out-patient setting to round out the experience.

Licensed MDs or DOs who have completed three years in physical medicine and rehabilitation training or at least one year of cardiology subspecialty training.
