Our Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program, which was launched in 1971 and certified in 1988, is affiliated with the University of Arizona Sarver Heart Center, a center of excellence with over 160 members who are cardiologists, cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons, neurologists, research scientists and numerous other medical specialists.
Our program, nationally recognized for its outstanding faculty and its excellence in training in clinical cardiology, is a three-year program accredited for a total of 20 cardiology fellows by the National Residency Review Committee of the ACGME. The program trains in all disciplines recommended by the American College of Cardiology COCATS, thereby allowing the fellow to fulfill the requirements of level II COCATS training in the areas that they wish to emphasize. We support J1 visas.
We fully embrace the University of Arizona’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. Race, ethnicity, culture, physical abilities, talents, language, spiritual practices, sexual orientation, gender identity and life experiences as essential aspects that we must respect in order to train our country’s future cardiologists and promote health and well-being for all of our patients.
Please see our Research Training page for further information and individualizing training to meet your career needs.
Our fellows rotate in all cardiology subspecialties at three Tucson hospitals: Banner - University Medical Center - Tucson, Banner - University Medical Center - South Campus, and the Southern Arizona VA Health Care System. Fellows receive training in all aspects of cardiology including advanced imaging, heart failure, transplantation, electrophysiology, congenital heart disease and interventional cardiology.
