The Interventional Cardiology Fellowship at Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, is an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited one-year program that provides one fellow 12 months of clinical training in coronary interventional procedures, peripheral interventions and structural heart procedures as well as experience in a longitudinal ambulatory clinic.
Our program boasts a 100 percent pass rate on interventional cardiology boards, and we have a student-faculty ratio of 1:7.
We accept one fellow per year.
Our fellows receive clinical training in coronary interventional procedures, peripheral interventions, structural heart procedures and experience in a longitudinal ambulatory clinic.
Within the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory, fellows obtain detailed, extensive exposure to the essential components of adult invasive diagnostic and therapeutic cardiovascular procedures. By the end of the training, the interventional cardiology fellow will have acquired the knowledge base, judgment and technical skills to become an independent operator in interventional cardiology. All fellows are required to maintain detailed documentation of the procedures they perform.
The Baylor Jack and Jane Hamilton Heart and Vascular Hospital cardiac catheterization laboratory performs more than 4,000 diagnostic cardiac procedures and more than 1,500 coronary interventions annually.
