Educating the cardiac leaders of tomorrow
Our accredited programs for residents and fellows help develop the clinical expertise needed to offer the very best cardiac care. All while working with renowned leaders in a range of cardiovascular specialties.

Graduate medical programs

As a leader in cardiac care, Northwell Health realizes that one of the most important investments is medical education. Multiple residency and fellowship opportunities are available, and curriculum offerings encompass the gamut 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 more than 23 hospitals and 550 outpatient facilities, 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 Institutes for Medical Research helps conduct groundbreaking research.
  • Rotations: Residents and fellows are permitted to rotate into different clinical settings to satisfy multidisciplinary goals.

Continuing medical education

Northwell Health offers physicians currently in practice a variety of opportunities to advance their skills.
