Benefits: Fellows' stipends are paid monthly in accordance with the PGY scale. All fellows receive four weeks of vacation per year, usually divided into one- to two-week blocks.

Application Process: The Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship program participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). There are five fellowship positions available a year.

The application process for the three-year General Cardiovascular Medicine fellowship training program can be initiated by using the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) beginning July 1. The complete ERAS application should be submitted by August 15.

All applications must include:

  • ERAS Common Application Form (CAF)
  • Medical School Transcript
  • Medical School Dean’s Letter
  • Three letters of recommendation (including one letter from the Internal Medicine Residency Program Director)
  • USMLE Steps 1 & 2 Transcripts and, if applicable, ECFMG Status Report
  • Please submit the ERAS application by August 15

For International Medical Graduates (IMG), completion of an ACGME-accredited Internal Medicine Residency training program and ABIM board-eligibility in internal medicine is required for ABIM board-eligibility and certification in cardiovascular medicine.

In September, selected applicants will be contacted for interviews. During the interview visit, applicants will meet with several faculty members as well the current fellows. All efforts will be made to accommodate applicants' areas of interest or future goals for their fellowship training.

Please note: University Hospitals is committed to the health and wellness of our employees, our patients and our community. As part of these efforts, effective January 1, 2012, we will only hire candidates that do not use tobacco products.
