Dr. Robert S. Flinn Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program

The Dr. Robert S. Flinn Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center is a three-year program that will offer comprehensive training for clinical cardiologists in a dynamic environment. These fellows, who should possess a passion for learning, will provide high-quality, compassionate care to our patients. The skills learned during this fellowship will benefit fellows for the lifetime of their careers.

The fellowship curriculum has been designed to provide fellows with inpatient and outpatient experience with patients suffering from various acute and chronic cardiovascular diseases. Fellows will also acquire extensive experience in both noninvasive and invasive cardiac procedures, and will gain knowledge outside the clinical setting by attending core curriculum lectures to enhance their basic cardiovascular knowledge and fundamental clinical skills. The training environment is a culture which promotes reliance on evidence-based medicine; upon completion of the fellowship, fellows should be able to think critically and analyze patients thoughtfully. They are expected to carry these experiences forward in their careers, becoming dedicated clinicians and knowledgeable educators for their patients, staff, and communities.

St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center is a tertiary referral hospital that evaluates and treats a large number of cardiac patients. We have the technology, resources, and know-how to perform cutting-edge cardiac procedures such as transcatheter aortic valve replacements and percutaneous left atrial appendage closures. Our expert cardiologists are specialists in both invasive and noninvasive procedures, and the breadth of their expertise is vast. These respected physicians are dedicated educators who will offer a wealth of knowledge and experience to these fellows in a collegial, collaborative environment.
