Interventional Cardiology Fellowship

(LAC+USC’s STEMI program, recently honored by the County of Los Angeles)

The Interventional Cardiology Fellowship Program is designed to train fellows in the use of percutaneous interventional techniques in the management of coronary, vascular and valvular heart disease. The one-year program is comprehensive, structured and carefully supervised by a Board Certified Staff including senior staff with collectively over 100 person/years of interventional experience. Program fellows train LAC+USC Medical Center.

The training includes didactic conferences, weekly case conferences, and individual fellow and faculty clinical patient reviews (pre- and post-procedure) to discuss risk, benefit, results, treatment strategies and complications. Trainees also assist in teaching diagnostic fellows, medicine residents and other student groups (biomedical, undergraduate, etc.). Included in the training is an opportunity to lead the case discussions at a weekly cath conference. Program emphasis is placed on giving fellows ample opportunity to learn appropriate technical skills for safe coronary and peripheral intervention using multiple devices including rotational atherectomy, balloons, stents, filter devices, and to advance and refine diagnostic cath skills. Ample coronary procedures are available to meet required procedure volumes.
