Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship | Jersey Shore University Medical Center   

Our Mission

The mission of the Cardiovascular Fellowship Program is to provide comprehensive training in clinical cardiology as well as in-depth exposure to cardiovascular sub-specialties and research. The goal of this program is to teach the fellow clinical knowledge, procedural skills, clinical judgment, professionalism, interpersonal skills and ethical insight in the management of basic and complex cardiovascular diseases. The curriculum is designed to provide broad clinical exposure in acute and chronic cardiovascular care in the inpatient and outpatient settings as well as extensive experience in noninvasive and invasive cardiac modalities. Fellowship training will prepare the trainee to function not only as an outstanding cardiologist but also as a contributing member of the medical community.
