The section of cardiovascular medicine operates specialized research centers where fellows can train in specialized areas of cardiovascular medicine research. These centers provide extensive infrastructure support, scientific leadership, and research expertise and engage in a broad spectrum of groundbreaking research. Our centers include:

Fellows can also choose to conduct research training through our faculty labs that focus on specific areas of research. Recent fellows have also trained through the Vascular Medicine OutcomeS (VAMOS) research program, which focuses on improving vascular health outcomes, and the Cardiovascular Data Science (CarDS) Lab, which focuses on using a multifaceted data-driven evaluation of cardiovascular care and outcomes to provide insights into how we deliver care to patients.

Research training can be accomplished within the scope of the general cardiology fellowship or through other specific research programs available at Yale.

Yale offers several different pathways for pursuing advanced training in cardiovascular medicine research:

We also offer a pathway for clinical and translational research, where you will receive focused, in-depth training on areas such as noninvasive imaging, outcomes research, interventional cardiology, and heart failure.

We understand that every fellow has their own specific career goals. We will work closely with you to design a training program based on your prior experience and career interests. We encourage you to communicate with faculty early in your training so you can learn about all the tailoring options available.

How do I apply?

Each specific research program has its own application process.

If you are interested in a combined research and clinical fellowship program, please submit your application through ERAS and specify your interest in combined clinical/research training in your personal statement.

If you have questions about the options available, please contact the program director or other members of the faculty leadership team.
