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.
THIS IS YOUR FELLOWSHIP and the ultimate goal is to allow you to become a leader in your chosen field of cardiology.
St. Vincent Medical Group (SVMG) Cardiology has performed TAVR nearly since its inception in the U.S., and has been involved in many of the pivotal trials. We continue to be involved in "first in man" trials for novel TAVR devices. We will perform more than 400 TAVR operations this year, and expect to perform more than 500 next year, placing SVMG Cardiology among the Top 5 in the U.S.
