Training and Education
The Interventional Cardiology Fellowship is a comprehensive one-year program designed to provide the skills required for a successful leadership career in both academic and clinical practice. The challenging cases, procedural volume, dedicated faculty, and the academic strength of our fellows ensure that our trainees receive a comprehensive education in all aspects of interventional cardiovascular medicine. The core curriculum is designed to provide a strong clinical foundation in Interventional Cardiology. OSU-CHS’s Interventional Cardiology fellows receive supervised one on one interventional training in coronary, peripheral, and structural procedures. They will be cultivated to gain superior clinical skills and confidence for entry into their own practice upon graduation.
