Sanford School of Medicine approved for Cardiovascular Fellowship
This new program is one of just 187 Cardiovascular Fellowships approved for development in the United States and addresses a critical health care need in South Dakota. Fellows selected for the Sanford School of Medicine program will receive education and training from faculty that has more than 130 years of combined teaching experience, including Sanford Health cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons.
“Sanford Health cardiologists look forward to guiding this important fellowship,” stated Adam Stys, MD, interventional cardiologist with Sanford, who is the Program Director. “These cardiovascular fellows will be among the best trained in the world. For our patients, this will strengthen the already internationally recognized cardiovascular program at Sanford. Our cardiologists will be stimulated to teach and stay on or ahead of cutting edge in diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. “
Scheduled to begin July 1, 2012, the program requires three full years of commitment for two fellows per year. Fellowship training will include rotations in areas such as cardiac catheterization lab, coronary critical care, electrophysiology, non-invasive cardiac evaluations, cardiac research and others. The rotations will occur primarily at Sanford Heart Hospital, with some rotations at the VA Hospital in Sioux Falls. This very competitive training program will result in release of two board eligible cardiologists yearly.
