Interventional Cardiology Fellowship
The Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center Interventional Cardiology Fellowship Program is designed to graduate physicians who are competent to independently practice interventional cardiovascular medicine with a high degree of professionalism and humanism.
This fellowship program is structured to be one year in duration. Program curriculum accords with those precepts promulgated by the Residency Review Committee (RRC) of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
The program is organized to provide supervised training and experience in the evaluation and management of a wide variety of patients with acute and chronic cardiovascular conditions. Additionally, Interventional Cardiovascular Fellowship program graduates must be competent to independently perform and interpret various procedures. The graduating physician should be able to independently and completely supervise and monitor other health professionals in the field of Interventional Cardiovascular Medicine.
Graduates of the Interventional Fellowship will have performed at least 250 interventional procedures as the primary operator. This is the minimum number set forth by the American College of Cardiology to be eligible for the certifying board examination in Interventional Cardiology.
Graduates are expected to pass the subspecialty board examination in Interventional Cardiology of the American Board of Internal Medicine. Additionally, graduates must design and complete a research project during their fellowship program which, at a minimum, must be submitted for publication. The graduating fellow must demonstrate a commitment to continuing education through ongoing study.
