Mission Statement

The Medical City Fort Worth Interventional Cardiology 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 Fellowship in Interventional Cardiology at Medical City Fort Worth is designed to provide the trainee with high-quality instruction and experience in interventional cardiology. The volume is high in both cardiac and peripheral interventions.

The program is 12 months in duration and is ACGME approved for two annual positions. Residents may be accepted into the program only after successfully completing three years of general internal medicine training and three years of general cardiology training. The base training institution is Medical City Fort Worth.

The goals of the interventional cardiology fellowship include

  1. Identification of cardiology disease states that are amenable to catheter-based intervention
  2. Development of the medical knowledge and technical skill to perform appropriate catheter-based interventions and providing appropriate pre- and post-procedure care.

Continuity outpatient clinic training is provided at Medical City Fort Worth as well as at affiliate sites (in the ambulatory care facilities of the teaching faculty). The program is designed to provide educational and experiential input from a broad range of specialty providers.

At the successful completion of the program, the Fellow will have received adequate instruction and experience to qualify for Level 3 skills in interventional cardiology.

Didactics will be delivered through the cardiology lecture series presented by faculty and cardiology fellows which include weekly cardiac catheterization conferences, cardiology conferences, journal club, and daily academic rounds on all rotations.
