A Message from our Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program Director
Welcome to the University of Texas Health San Antonio Cardiovascular Medicine Fellowship Program!
Our ACGME accredited 3-year fellowship is committed to the highest standards of academic excellence and clinical care. We pride ourselves in being a premier clinical training site that emphasizes education, scholarship, compassionate health care, teamwork, and diversity.
The general fellowship curriculum provides comprehensive training in the field of cardiovascular disease while allowing fellows to individualize their experiences to meet future career goals. Working with our partners at University Health (a regional level I trauma center and leader in organ transplantation) and the Audie Murphy VA (a tertiary referral enter serving most of south Texas), our fellows are exposed to the volume and diversity needed to develop their skills. In addition to core rotations, fellows have opportunities to train with experts in the fields of cardio-oncology, women’s health, advanced heart failure/transplant, advanced cardiac imaging, and structural interventions.
The Cardiovascular Disease fellowship program accepts 6 fellows per year across the 3 years of training. Roughly 40% of graduates pursue further advanced fellowship training with successful matches in the areas of interventional cardiology, advanced heart failure, and electrophysiology. Another 40% go into private or group practices with the remaining 20% pursuing academic careers.
Located in the 7th largest city in the United States and the largest health science center in south Texas, San Antonio is an incredible place to live and train. We thank you for your interest in our program and look forward to reviewing your application.
