The University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine offers a one-year interventional cardiology fellowship, accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
The program trains one fellow per year at the six-floor Sanford Heart Hospital, a state-of-the-art facility located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Fellows have access to all Food and Drug Administration-approved devices in our cath labs, many of which are bi-plane, and are expected to participate in and perform more than 1,000 procedures, including angioplasty and structural heart disease procedures, during the year of training.
Program faculty consists of high-volume operators with experience and motivation to teach, develop and publish interventional techniques. Our institution is the regional leader in innovation and education in the field of cardiovascular disease.
