Advanced Heart Failure Fellowship

The one-year fellowship will provide specialized training in the inpatient and outpatient management of the spectrum of patients with heart failure, from initial diagnosis to consideration of high-risk cardiac surgery, transplantation, mechanical circulatory support, medical management and end-of-life care.

Training will include hospital management, pre- and post-transplant evaluation and therapy, adult congenital heart disease evaluation, cardiopulmonary exercise testing, cardiac biopsy and CRT/ICD device management. The fellow will also be integrally involved with the busy Mechanical Circulatory Support Service and will participate in ventricular assist device (VAD) patient selection, perioperative care and outpatient management. The fellow will also have the opportunity to participate in research which spans the gamut from translational research to pharmaceutical and device therapy.

Applicants should be in possession of a California license by the start date of the fellowship. To apply for the program please return a cover letter and copy of your CV to our fellowship office listed below.
