Overview of Educational Programs
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.
Yale Cardiovascular Medicine AHA Undergraduate Research Fellowship
We are recruiting up to 5 highly qualified undergraduate students from diverse educational and personal backgrounds for a 10-week mentored research fellowship experience (June 1, 2020-August 15, 2020) at Yale University. Ideal candidates are full-time students in the summer between their junior and senior years of college who have outstanding academic records and a passion for scientific investigation. The program will pair each student with a Yale Cardiology Faculty research mentor and they will work together on a mentored research project in cardiovascular disease (including basic, translational, and clinical science). Students will also be required to live in commuting distance to New Haven and attend weekly lectures and group sessions, in addition to their daily research activities. Students will be compensated with a $4000 stipend. The application deadline is March 1, 2020.
