Interventional Cardiology Fellowship
Trainees within the University of Utah's Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship program as well as outside candidates may apply for specialized training in the Interventional Cardiology Fellowship program. A total of twelve months of dedicated interventional training is required following three years of training in general cardiology.
The interventional cardiology fellowship program provides clinical training in PTCA, stenting, rotational atherectomy, and intravascular ultrasound. In addition to training in technical and procedural skills, fellows receive experience in pre- and post-procedural management, as well as in clinical decision-making. Trainees also participate in clinical trials in interventional cardiology.
Two fellows are accepted into the program each year, with the possibility of extending to three fellows, and each fellow will participate in over 300 interventional cases performed at the University Hospital and the Salt Lake Veterans Affairs Medical Center. In addition the University of Utah is a designated center for Trans Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR).
The INTV fellowship at the University of Utah is accredited by the ACGME and fellows completing the INTV year are eligible to take the INTV board examination administered by the ABIM. The ACGME stipulates that the INTV year follow three years of general cardiology fellowship.
