Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship
The three-year Cardiovascular Disease fellowship program with a complement of 21 fellows at Feinberg School of Medicine provides advanced training in all aspects of cardiovascular medicine and fulfills the eligibility requirements set forth by the American Board of Internal Medicine for the subspecialty examination in cardiovascular diseases. Our fellowship program is in constant evolution with ongoing input from both fellows and faculty members. We are committed to providing our fellows with the best clinical and research training in cardiology. The program is directed by faculty members in the Division of Cardiology, who have appointments in the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine's Department of Medicine.
