Thank you for your interest in our Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program. Mount Sinai Medical Center is the largest private, independent, non-profit teaching hospital in South Florida. Our program is an affiliated teaching site for the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, and the Florida International University Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine. Our 672 bed hospital provides care to a large local patient population; however, due to its South Florida location, Mount Sinai also serves as a referral center to international patients from the Caribbean and Central and South America. We are a three-year fellowship program that complies with all ACGME requirements, in addition to following the guidelines and recommendations of the American College of Cardiology (COCATS). Fellows receive training and supervised experience in the evaluation and management of a wide variety of acute and chronic cardiovascular conditions. Clinical rotations, simulation, didactics, procedures, mentored research and self-directed learning prepares our fellows to be future leaders in Cardiovascular Medicine. The program is directed by faculty members in the Division of Cardiology; attending have faculty appointments with Columbia University Medical Center in New York. Fellows are an essential part of the division and our faculty is firmly committed to training the academic leaders of tomorrow. We hope that you will decide to join us to learn, be mentored, professionally grow, and prepare yourself for the exciting future as competent cardiologists.
