The Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center
is a comprehensive, three-year clinical training program. It is designed
to provide the basic General Cardiology training required by ACGME and
offers advanced training to further enhance fellow’s experience
in any cardiac subspecialty as per fellow’s interest and career goals.
All fellows rotate among two of the largest hospitals in the state, Newark
Beth Israel Medical Center and Saint Barnabas Medical Center, with a total
of more than 1200 beds. The two hospitals offer an exceptional variety
of patient populations and various manifestations of common and rare cardiac
pathologies. Our state of the art cardiology division provides exceptional
clinical training in general cardiology and all the subspecialties throughout
the three years of fellowship.
Research is an important component of our program. The overall patient
volume, variety of basic and advanced clinical services, faculty and research
support staff provides the basic infrastructure required for meaningful
clinical research. Our excellence in research is evident by the effective
contributions of our fellows at the all the national cardiology meetings
and the number of peer reviewed publications.
The program meets all the training requirements as set forth by ACGME.
Internal medicine residency in the United States is a prerequisite for
admission. Applications must be submitted through the Electronic Residency
Application Service (ERAS®). We participate in the Medical Specialties
Matching Program (MSMP).
