The Stanford Echocardiography and Cardiovascular Imaging section offers a one-year non-ACGME fellowship program.
This dedicated clinical imaging fellowship training is echo focused, designed to provide advanced echo training and fulfill the COCATS requirements for level III training in echo, including significant experience with transesophageal echo guidance of transcatheter structural interventions, including TAVR, mitral valve repair, paravalvular regurgitation repair, left atrial appendage occlusion, and congenital interventions, such as atrial and ventricular septal defect closure. It is expected that fellows that complete this training will pursue board certification in echocardiography.
The training will also include clinical training in multimodality imaging, including cardiovascular MRI and coronary CTA. Cardiovascular MRI curriculum will allow intense investigation to wide array of pathology including, ischemic and non-ischemic cardiomyopathy, myocardial perfusion stress study, T1/T2 map, regurgitant quantification, 4-D flow study, and adult congenital heart disease. Opportunities for further exposure to coronary CTA, nuclear cardiology, and PET are also available. Although this is a clinical fellowship, development of and/or contribution to a wide array of research project focused on advanced imaging is encouraged.
