Welcome from our Program Director

It is a pleasure to welcome you as the Program Director of our Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program. We could not be more excited about your interest in our program.

Mission Statement

The HCA Florida JFK Hospital 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 University of Miami/ JFK Medical Center and the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center are pleased to offer our ACGME accredited Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program. Our general Cardiovascular Fellowship will be focused on clinical cardiology of both an acute and chronic nature.

Two fellows in each year will rotate on the consult service, the CCU, the cardiac catheterization, and EP laboratories. With over three hundred open heart surgeries, one of the busiest TAVR sites in the country, and an EP lab that performs the second most number of procedures annually in the southeast United States, full exposure to all aspects of cardiovascular disease will be readily available. The fellows will also have experience in advanced heart failure treatment, including device therapy and noninvasive imaging laboratories, including CT, CMR, nuclear cardiology, and echocardiography. Given the increasing emphasis on outpatient care, the fellows will have one half day per week of outpatient clinic with patients alongside their assigned attending. As a community outreach effort, the fellows attend the Caridad clinic monthly, which is the largest free healthcare clinic in Florida.
