Clinical excellence through exceptional education
Our residencies and fellowships help medical professionals develop the clinical expertise needed to offer the very best care in a wide range of cardiac specialties. All while working with a multidisciplinary team of renowned cardiac experts.

Graduate medical education

As a leader in cardiac care, we realize that one of the most important investments is medical education. Multiple residency and fellowship opportunities are available with curriculum offerings that span the wide range of cardiac care disciplines and medical subspecialties including surgery, cardiology, vascular and thoracic.

The accredited programs allow residents and fellows the opportunity to develop expertise while working with leaders in research, clinical practice and ongoing care.

Residents and fellows choose us because of:

  • Patient volume: Because we’re an integrated system of 24 hospitals and 550 private practices, fellows and residents see numerous cases addressing a variety of conditions.
  • Location: Residents and fellows are immersed in a clinical setting that is in close proximity to social attractions in Manhattan and nearby metropolitan cities.
  • Multidisciplinary teams: The multidisciplinary clinical staff has a wealth of knowledge, and their skills are diverse in disciplines and subspecialties. This unique setting provides residents and fellows an integrated experience in clinical care.
  • Technology: The clinical teams have access to the latest medical devices and technology. Residents and fellows receive training in the most modern treatments.
  • Research: The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research helps conduct groundbreaking research.
