Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship

The Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program at Baystate Medical Center is a 3 year program of one month clinical rotations and daily educational conferences. Three fellows are chosen each year through the National Residency Match Program.

Our Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship received approximately 400 applications for its 3 openings during the 2011 application season.

Program Strengths

Our program offers:

  • a large patient population
  • collegial faculty
  • active interventional cardiovascular and cardiothoracic surgical programs.

Fellows receive training in cardiac catheterization, echocardiography, electrophysiology, nuclear cardiology, cardiac intensive care, heart failure and general cardiology.  Personalized access to Cardiosource Plus, a rich online resource from the American College of Cardiology, and its learning and self-assessment materials is also provided.

Post-Fellowship Opportunities

After successful completion of the 3 year program, you qualify for COCATS level 2 certification in Adult Echocardiography, Exercise Testing, ECG and Ambulatory ECG  Monitoring, Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterization and Nuclear Cardiology.


You may further your education by applying to Baystate's:

Come to Stay!

Many who come to Baystate for fellowship training choose to remain in the area after graduation.  The Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts offers cultural and recreational activities in a beautiful setting.  The area is home to the Five Colleges and numerous musical, theatrical and museum events.  Outlets for skiing, hiking, boating, and other outdoor activities abound close to the Connecticut River and in the nearby Berkshires.
