Cardiovascular Disease

The primary mission of the Stony Brook University Fellowship Program in Cardiovascular Medicine is to develop the next generation of leaders in academic medicine. It is assumed that all graduates of our training program will be expert clinicians. In addition we expect our graduates to be master teachers and/or successful clinical or basic investigators. In order to meet the rigors of cardiology in the 21st Century, we have developed two major training pathways. The Clinician tract will involve an intense 3-year training experience that is designed to develop expert clinicians. It is anticipated that many of these individuals will pursue a fourth year in interventional cardiology or electrophysiology (recognized subspecialties of the ABIM). The Investigator tract is designed for individuals interested in a career in academic cardiology. These individuals will complete 24 months of in-depth clinical training. An additional 2 to 3 years will be devoted exclusively to research. The research experience is designed to give the trainee the necessary tools in the techniques of investigator-initiated clinical and/or basic research.

Only U.S. Citizens/permanent residents and J-1 visas sponsored by the ECFMG are considered for clinical training. The institution does not sponsor H visas and we cannot accept applicants with 'pending permanent residency' status. If a J-1 visa holder, the applicant must have adequate time to complete fellowship prior to losing J-1 status (7-year total).
