A message from the cardiology fellowship program director.
Welcome to the information page of the General Cardiology Fellowship Program at St. Joseph Mercy Oakland. Our program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and adheres strictly to ACGME and American College of Cardiology (ACC) guidelines.
Our fellowship provides a three-year, in-depth experience and training in the details of cardiovascular disease. The training is under the direct supervision of multiple, highly skilled faculty members. We have two fellows per year of training for a total of six fellows. At the completion of the fellowship, each fellow is board-eligible in the subspecialty of Cardiology.
The fellowship has core rotations in cardiac consultation, acute coronary care, cardiac catheterization, non-invasive cardiology (including echocardiography, nuclear, CT and MR), cardiac electrophysiology, electrocardiography, research and vascular medicine. We also provide the option of electives in areas of special interest.
Our fellowship program includes daily academic conferences. Our regular conferences include:
- Non-Invasive (including Echocardiography, Nuclear, CT and MR)
- Cardiology Grand Rounds
- Morbidity & Mortality
- Journal Review
- There is also an extensive series of conferences covering a well-thought-out core curriculum.
Applicants for the Cardiology Fellowship Program should apply via ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). We require 3 letters of recommendation and a list of six individuals that we may call to discuss your accomplishments (list may include the same individuals who provide a recommendation letter). We also require official medical school transcripts, current curriculum vitae, a personal statement, and USMLE scores. Once these documents have been received, the selection committee will review the application. The applicant will be notified by e-mail if selected for an interview. Applicants must be U.S. citizens, permanent residents of the U.S. or possess a J-1 visa or work authorization card.
