WellSpan’s Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship program will provide you with all the tools to become a well-rounded specialist. All fellows will be expected to reach COCATS level II in echo, nuclear cardiology and cardiac catheterization.
Fellows will have exposure to basic Cardiology procedures, including:
- Transesophageal Echocardiography
- Nuclear Cardiology, including SPECT and PET
- Electrophysiologic procedures, including ablations and pacemaker insertions
WellSpan’s Fellowship will also provide exposure to more advanced percutaneous invertensions, such as:
- Treatment of complex coronary disease, including CTOs
- Structural heart interventions, including TAVR/mitraclip
- Placement of mechanical support devices, including ECMO, Impella, and Tandem Heart
The program also offers education to perform and read structural TEE, CT, and MRI from leaders in the field. Additionally, fellows will learn to be a teacher as WellSpan is a rotation site for three different medical schools and have residents who round on the various cardiology services. Honing research skills is also part of the curriculum through mentorship to present at national meetings and publish in peer reviewed journals.
