Cardiology fellows rotating at UCH have access to high clinical volumes in all domains of cardiovascular disease as well as exposure to the latest technology in medical devices and involvement in cardiovascular clinical trials. The cardiologists who staff UCH are all faculty within the Division of Cardiology. Multi-disciplinary care with close collaboration is the norm, including formal relationships with cardiothoracic surgery, interventional radiology, vascular surgery, endocrinology, and pulmonary hypertension in the Heart and Vascular Center; medical oncology in the Cancer Center; various specialties in the Transplant Center; and emergency and critical care medicine through robust Cardiology Consultative and Primary Cardiology services (Step-Down, Cardiac Critical Care Units) on the inpatient side.
