The first two years are devoted to clinical training in general and critical care cardiology, heart failure and transplantation, mechanical circulatory devices, cardiac catheterization, electrophysiology, preventive cardiology, vascular medicine, congenital heart disease and noninvasive cardiac imaging, including echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, cardiac CT, PET and MRI. The third year is devoted to clinical electives and investigative training in basic and translational cardiology research.
