Rotations for the Cardiology Fellowship Program will take place at the following sites:

Our sponsoring institution, UHS Southern California Medical Education Consortium, comprises five acute care hospitals recognized for quality of care and patient safety. The Cardiology Fellowship Program takes place at four of these facilities – TVH, IVMC, RSMC and CRMC. Over the course of their training, fellows will provide care for patients across these sites.

The primary clinical site, Temecula Valley Hospital, was built in 2013 and offers a comprehensive range of services similar to hospitals in large metropolitan areas. The hospital offers specialty services including Interventional Cardiology, Structural Cardiology, Endovascular Medicine, Cardiothoracic Surgery and Neuro-Interventional services.

Didactics

Didactics will encompass all major subject areas from Cardiology and its subspecialty areas. In combination with teaching faculty, cardiology fellows will give and attend lectures and presentations. This didactic curriculum is composed of core lecture topics, board review, journal club, Grand Rounds and M&Ms.

They will also have special rotation-specific didactic lectures provided by faculty on a weekly basis.

Research and Scholarly Activity

Our program seeks to advance our fellows’ knowledge of basic principles of research, including how research is conducted, evaluated, explained to patients and applied to patient care. Fellows will develop their research abilities through various activities including Journal Club, Population Health didactics and Clinical Case Conference didactic sessions.

Fellows are assigned faculty mentors to advise and guide them with their research and scholarly activities. Because of its importance, fellows will be allotted time during non-call rotations for scholarly activity as well as the ability to request elective time for scholarly pursuits.

All fellows are expected to participate in scholarly activity and are to complete at least two Scholarly Activity Projects over the course of their training, one of which must be a quality improvement project. Fellows will participate in hospital performance improvement committees and be exposed to ongoing activities taking place at the hospital such as patient safety efforts and quality improvement.

Fellows will present their Scholarly Activity Projects during didactic sessions and are encouraged to submit their projects for presentation and/or publication at professional local, regional or national meetings or in peer-reviewed journals.
