The Cardiovascular Medicine Fellowship Program at University of Miami / Jackson Memorial Hospital includes rotations at 3 distinctive training institutions.  The training program is based at Jackson Memorial Hospital.  Our trainees also rotate through the Miami Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the University of Miami Hospital.  The core training program includes supervised experience in the full spectrum of cardiovascular disciplines including both inpatient and outpatient cardiovascular consultation, critical-care cardiology, post-operative management of cardiovascular surgical patients, interventional cardiology, clinical electrophysiology, heart failure / cardiac transplantation, and cardiovascular imaging.  During the third year of the program, elective time is available to structure in research, and further training in areas of interest.

The mission of the cardiovascular training program is to select, train and develop academic cardiovascular medicine faculty in support of the mission of academic excellence of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and the mission of service of the Jackson Health System, the Veteran's Affairs Medical Center, and the University of Miami Hospital.

New Developments at UM / JMH Cardiology
Cardiovascular education is an ongoing dynamic field.  As such the fellowship training program continues to look for and experiment with new and novel ways to help facilitate and augment our trainees education.  Over the past year we have led several educational initiatives including: 

- Cardiovascular simulation training - 
        We continue to develop a curriculum for simulation training using the Mentice cath lab simulator to augment the trainees hands-on experience with cardiac catheterization procedures in the cardiac cath lab.

        A new bi-annual lecture series with invited guest lecturers, to bring some of the top minds and leaders in cardiology to the UM campus and discuss their contributions to the field of cardiovascular medicine, and their pathways to success. The agenda will include small group sessions with the fellows and faculty.  We were honored to have Dr Eugene Braunwald as our inaugural "Pioneers in Cardiology" lecturer in Apr 2018.
On Wednesday May 1 2019, we welcome Dr James S Forrester to the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. Scheduled lectures include:

                  - Dr. Forrester discusses “ Misfits, Mavericks, and the Greatest Medical Breakthrough of our Times”- Wed, May 1st - 7:30-8:30 am
