St. Vincent Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship


The Cardiology training program must focus on training leaders in cardiology committed to their career and prepared to excel in the art and science of cardiovascular medicine. The training should not only provide all the fundamental skills necessary to enable the physician to become an exemplary clinician and teacher, but it should also instill the utmost respect for the patient, stressing the critical importance of a compassionate and caring doctor-patient relationship.

The training program’s emphasis should be on the development of particular skills that will foster a life-long enthusiasm for clinical or basic science research that will lead to improved understanding of disease processes, and ultimately, toward advancements in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of patients with cardiovascular disease.

The impact of this study indicates an opportunity to improve cardiovascular care in the United States, if the efforts of the Heart Center and other recognized hospitals are replicated.  In fact, if all cardiovascular providers in the U.S. performed at the level of this year's Truven winners, more than 9,000 additional lives and $1.4 billion could be saved.
