NYU Langone’s Leon H. Charney Division of Cardiology offers a highly selective one-year Interventional Cardiology Fellowship for applicants who have completed a fellowship in cardiovascular diseases.
We review more than 80 applications annually and fill our 3 positions from an interviewed group of about 20 candidates. The fellowship is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
For those interested in pursuing careers in interventional cardiology, this program provides the requisite clinical knowledge and procedural training during one year of intensive didactic, clinical, and technical training in coronary and peripheral arterial diagnostic and interventional procedures.
The training program offers fellows broad exposure to complex interventions, including chronic total occlusions, unprotected left main disease, and advanced hemodynamic support. In addition, trainees perform a large number of intracardiac imaging procedures, evaluation of coronary physiology, endomyocardial biopsies, alcohol septal ablation, and percutaneous balloon valvuloplasty.
A strong research program exists under the direction of Sripal Bangalore, MD, and trainees can actively participate in multiple clinical trials in addition to pursuing individual research projects.
Fellows train in NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital and Kimmel Pavilion, NYC + Health Hospitals/Bellevue, and the VA NY Harbor Healthcare System, Manhattan campus. Our faculty treat a wide range of patients of all genders and from remarkably diverse ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds; the case mix provides fellows with a truly exceptional educational experience. Together, experts at NYU Langone’s Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory and the labs at Bellevue and the VA NY Harbor Healthcare System conduct more than 9,000 diagnostic and interventional coronary and peripheral procedures each year.
The Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories provide a venue in which fellows can learn the theory and practice of invasive and interventional cardiology. Our faculty teach interventional techniques through procedural performance with immediate feedback. Progressive responsibility, coupled with case conferences and yearlong didactic seminars addressing an array of basic and advanced topics, foster a deep knowledge base, and hone clinical acumen.
Fellows also gain exposure to percutaneous valvuloplasty, device-based percutaneous valve repair and replacement, atrial septal defect and patent foramen ovale closure, alcohol septal ablation in the treatment of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and various experimental treatments as part of clinical research trials. A formal two-week elective in structural heart intervention is also part of the curriculum.
An unaccredited Structural Heart Disease Fellowship is available by application as a separate program that follows completion of the Interventional Cardiology Fellowship.
