Mission Statement

The Corpus Christi Medical Center Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders. As a part of HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.

This program is designed to offer residents a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents’ perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values, and ideals.

Program Overview

The ACGME-accredited Cardiology Fellowship is a three-year program designed to provide its residents with the knowledge, resources, judgment, clinical and procedural skills not simple to practice but to flourish in their field.

Our program accepts one new resident each academic year. This ensures that each resident has the opportunity to do numerous procedures as well as give case presentations and participate in monthly journal clubs. We strive to ensure that our residents receive the best education and experience possible as well as exposure to a variety of patients and cases.

Residents will also have the opportunity to present at conferences each year as well as attend educational boot camps where they received additional simulation lab training.

Corpus Christi Medical Center, an HCA Healthcare affiliate, is made up of six hospitals bringing the best in medical care to South Texas. It has been a growing part of South Texas since 1962, what began as a 26-bed facility in the early 60s has grown into a 631-bed system offering a full range of health care services.

Of our six campuses, cardiology residents regularly practice at three: Bay Area Hospital, the Heart Hospital, and Doctor's Regional Hospital. In addition to these, residents practice at Corpus Christi Heart Clinic 1 day a week.

We also maintain agreements with outside facilities such as Methodist Hospital in San Antonio, Texas where residents complete a one-month advanced heart failure rotation during their training period.
