Overview of Educational Programs

Cardiovascular Medicine Fellows

The Yale Cardiovascular Medicine fellowship training programs are based at two hospitals- Yale New Haven Hospital (YNHH) and the West Haven Campus of the VA Connecticut Healthcare System (VACT). The Section of Cardiovascular Medicine at Yale consists of over 150 faculty members with a strong commitment to fellowship education. The fellowship has nearly 50 fellows, including training programs in general cardiovascular medicine, as well as subspecialty training in adult congenital heart disease, advanced heart failure and transplantation, cardiac Imaging (nuclear cardiology, echocardiography, CT/MRI), electrophysiology, interventional cardiology (coronary interventions, peripheral vascular interventions, and structural heart disease), and research fellowships.

American Heart Association Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowship

The Yale Cardiovascular Medicine and American Heart Association (AHA) Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowship is now accepting applicants for the next session, beginning June 1, 2023. Interested applicants should complete the application form by Friday, April 1, 2023.

Candidates should be full-time students in the summer between their junior and senior years of college or in the summer following their senior year who have outstanding academic records and a passion for scientific investigation. The program will pair each student with a Yale Cardiovascular Medicine faculty research mentor and they will work together on a mentored research project in cardiovascular disease (including basic, translational, and clinical science). At this time, we are planning for in-person, on-campus learning this summer, realizing this is subject to change based on conditions. Please contact Corianne Brennan at with any additional questions.
