The Sanford School of Medicine Cardiovascular Fellowship is an ACGME-accredited program that began training fellows July 1, 2012. The program is three years in length and is accredited for two fellows per year, for a total of six fellows.
The Cardiovascular Fellows receive their education in the newly constructed, state-of-the-art Sanford Heart Hospital (open March 2012), located on the campus of Sanford USD Medical Center in Sioux Falls, SD. Key Clinical Faculty of the Cardiovascular Fellowship Program are proud to be part of the Sanford Cardiovascular Institute, a progressive, quality-defining cardiovascular group in the region.
The Cardiovascular Fellowship is specifically designed to provide a solid and comprehensive educational experience for future cardiovascular specialists. With this in mind, the fellowship is focused on education rather than service, and holds a very favorable 1:1 faculty-to-fellow ratio for every rotation. The fellows work side by side with medical students, internal medicine residents and other health care trainees from around the region, nation and world.
In addition to receiving a solid educational experience, the Cardiovascular Fellows may also take advantage of the exceptional research opportunities at the Sanford Cardiovascular Health Research Center.
